## What does AP Physics stand for?

In the United States, Advanced Placement (AP) Physics collectively refers to the College Board Advanced Placement Program courses and exams covering various areas of physics.

What are the directions of the acceleration vectors of the ball at positions Q and R?

What are the directions of the acceleration vectors of the ball at positions Q and R? C, At Q the ball is in circular motion and the acceleration should point to the center of the circle. At R, the ball comes to rest and is subject to gravity as in free-fall. A mass m moves on a curved path from point X to point Y.

### Is AP Physics harder than college physics?

Generally, the AP physics C classes seem to be comparable to normal calculus based physics at the university. However, there can be a significant increase in difficulty when compared to an “honors” track designed for prospective physics majors.

Is a 3 on AP Physics good?

A score of 3 or higher is generally considered good, because that means you passed the exam! A 4 is considered very good, and a 5 is especially impressive since it is the highest score. Also keep in mind that every college sets its own policy about AP credit. Some schools only give credit for scores of 4 or 5.

Can a body accelerates at constant speed?

If a body is moving with constant speed in a circle, then yes, that body has acceleration.

#### When the ball is at the highest point of the circle the tension in the string is?

1. A ball of mass M attached to a string of length L moves in a circle in a vertical plane as shown above. At the top of the circular path, the tension in the string is twice the weight of the ball.
