Gain mastery over every type of question on the two units of 1. Electrostatics and 2. Conductors, Capacitors, Dielectrics that you are ever likely to find in the AP Physics C: Electricity and Magnetism exam. This becomes plausible because of the judicious way 'AP Physics C: Electricity and Magnetism, 2020 Edition: 100 Must-Know Questions in 1. Electrostatics 2. Conductors, Capacitors, Dielectrics With Answers and Explanations' is laid out. First step that assures complete coverage is the division of the two units into topics (eight in all) that coincide with those specified in the Course Framework updated by the College Board for 2019-20. Secondly, careful analysis of the exam questions and related information issued by the College Board from time to time coupled with vast teaching experience of the author has assured the inclusion of virtually all question types for each of these eight topics. Salient features of the book: - 100 AP-level questions (90 Multiple Choice and 10 Free Response Questions) pertaining to the aforementioned two units that together comprise 40-51% of the complete AP Physics C exam. - Answers and Detailed Explanations: The questions listed in the first part of the book are each followed by Answer Key and Detailed Explanations in the second part of the book. - Complete derivations of results: For answering the Physics C exam questions, students require a far deeper understanding of the concepts as compared to other easier exams, where, quite often, knowledge of the final results alone suffices. Keeping this in mind, we have always included, at appropriate places, complete derivations of the result being used to arrive at the answer. This will also help students recall an important component of the theory part that they would have studied otherwise. - Improvement of students' areas of difficulty: The division of questions into eight topics has the added advantage of allowing the students to easily find and improve upon those parts that they find difficult to grasp. - Also useful for calculus-based Physics courses: Even though the book is designed for AP Physics C exam, it can be equally useful for students taking calculus-based Physics courses. ******************************************************************* About the Author Sudhir K.
