Physics Unit 3 - Kinematics in Two Dimensions

High School, College, and AP Physics 1

Physics in two dimensions is another core unit for mastering physics. This course introduces two dimensional physics through vectors and kinematics in 2D.

We begin with an in-depth analysis for vectors. Love them or hate them, understanding vectors and the algebra included is an incredibly important early tool for mastering physics.

We then shift to analyzing kinematics in two dimensions. Students often find this topic to be very fun and interesting as one of our main focuses are projectiles! We will explore some basic foundation principles with two dimensional physics and progress through more challenging setups.
