AP Physics 2 students shock school with electricity lab

AP Physics 2 classes are heading back to preschool with the materials for their latest hands-on lab.

“Right now in AP Physics two, we are learning about current electricity,” AP Physics 2 teacher said. “So we’re taking the time to focus on how the different electrical components like resistors, and capacitors function within circuits. And so we’re working with play-doh to determine the resistance of the playdough. And look at how the shape and the cross sectional area and the length of the resistor affect the resistance.”

For junior Sathvik Yechuri, the real life application gives their learning new meaning. 

“Something fun about this is that it really connects math to real life,” Yechuri said. “So we’re not just finding random numbers using random equations. We’re relating physics to real life. So that’s really interesting to me.”
