This collection includes Free Response Essays for the Physics B-course from 1973-2014 and for APC Mechanics/Electromagnetism courses from 1973 to the present. During the school year 2014-2015, the AP B-course was replaced by two courses called AP Physics 1 and AP Physics 2. Those essays are also searchable.
Viewing of the actual linked free response questions can only be released to students who are registered in PhysicsLAB's online program while they are on campus. Teachers can get
copies of these essays: Physics B, Physics C-Electricity and Magnetism, and Physics C-Mechanics by attending local AP Workshops or through the AP Central website, supported by the College Board. Any teacher can search this collection to
locate past essays that they might then use in their local program of studies.
The search results identify essays chronologically. For example, if a query returns
1988B1 that would mean that the first free response question on the AP Physics B
exam in 1988 fit their search criteria. Or, if the search returns AP1 2015 FRQ#1 then the first free response question on the AP Physics 1 exam administered in May 2015 exam fits your query.
You may search this collection by keyword and/or topic.
