• AP Physics 2 Summer Homework

    Posted by Colleen Lum on 5/31/2017

    AP Physics 2 summer work – REQUIRED

    *You should be enrolled in AP 2 only if you: 1) completed AP 1 last year and 2) you are NOT taking the IB exam for physics.

    During the summer you will have to do a few Quest assignments. The assignments will help keep the concepts that we learned the past year fresh in your memory. 

    Summer work checklist

            Quest Summer work #1 due 6/30

            Quest Summer work #2 due 7/14

            Fluids Review (posted by 7/1)

            Quest Summer work #3 due 7/28

            Thermodynamics Introduction (posted by 7/15)

            Quest Summer work #4 due 8/9

            Additional HW may be added. If so, a message will be sent out via Remind (see instructions below)


    Quest Assignments

    If you have ever had a class that used Utex before, you already have a UT EID. Do not make another one. Go to Quest https://quest.cns.utexas.edu/student and sign in using your old login and password.

    You will need a course number in order to sign up. The AP class and IB class have different course numbers. In order to get access to the course number, you will need to solve the following problems. Once you sign up you will find the courses under the Summer 2017 tab.

    Course number for AP Physics

    a) An object has a weight of 480.2 N on Earth. The moon has 1/6th the gravity of the Earth. What is her mass on the moon? Give the answer in kilograms and round to one sig fig.

    b) In AP2/IB physics we use the speed of light a lot. The speed of light in a vacuum is 3 x 108 m/s. The radius of the Earth is 6371 km. How many times can light travel around the Earth is one second? Round your answer down to the nearest whole number.

    c) The air conditioner repairman told me my A/C unit was rated at 19 A of current. If it is connected to a 240 Volt circuit, how much energy will it use if Mrs. Lum runs it for 3 hours? Give the answer in mega joules and round to two sig figs.

    d) An object has a weight of 3.5 N in air and 2.2 N when fully submerged in water. Find the density and round to three sig figs.

    e) Add your answers from parts a, b, c, and d. This is the unique course number. Now sign up for Quest.
