Self study AP Physics C Mechanics while taking AP Physics 1
I am self studying AP Physics C Mechanics while taking AP Physics 1. I am currently in AP Calculus AB/BC. I am not taking physics c currently because my school doesn't offer it, so I chose to self study it. Can someone help me understand what I have to learn in addition to the AP Physics 1 for the AP Physics C mechanics exam? Is there any actual extra information I have to learn that isn't calculus? For example, in kinematics I know that velocity vs time is the first derivative of displacement vs time, and acceleration is the 2nd derivative. Is there anything else I need to learn for kinematics? I looked at the AP Physics C curriculum, but it is ambiguous on what extra stuff I need.
