What kind of calculus does AP Physics C: Mechanics use?

<p>Does it just use math from Calculus AB, or does it use math from all of Calculus BC?</p>

<p>I'm wandering this also. What topics should we definitely know?</p>

<p>Calculus AB.</p>

I think you need to know a bit more than this but the calculus shouldn't pose too much of an issue.</p>

<p>derivatives, integrals mostly</p>

<p>So if you have a solid understanding of applications of differentiation (optimization, extrema, etc.) and integration techniques on top of differentiation and polynomial integration you'll be fine?</p>

<p>yeah for the most part.</p>
