What do I need to purchase to do AP Physics C?

Below is a good list of Vernier equipment that supports AP Physics C. Since no two physics instructors teach AP physics in exactly the same way, this list may not have everything needed. You will want to add or remove items depending on what sensors and equipment you currently have, as well as your preferences and teaching style.

The Deluxe Physics Package is a good starting point:
LabQuest 2 Physics Deluxe Package, order code LQ2-PHY-DX, $1,064 contains:

For the Mechanics portion of AP Physics C, you will need Advanced Physics with Vernier - Mechanics, order code PHYS-AM, $48 and additional probeware. Order these sensors to add to the above list:

In order to do all of the labs in the Advanced Mechanics lab book, you will need this lab equipment:

The sensors and lab equipment listed here is based on the full contents in the Advanced Mechanics lab book. If you will be performing a subset of experiments from this book, you may be able to strike some items from the list. See the table of contents pages to see a list of equipment needed for each experiment.

For the Electricity and Magnetism portion of the exam, you will need Advanced Physics with Vernier - Beyond Mechanics, order code PHYS-ABM, $48 and additional probeware. Order these sensors a la carte:

In order to do all of the labs in the Beyond Mechanics book, you will need this lab equipment:

The sensors and lab equipment list here is based on the full contents in the Beyond Mechanics lab book. If you will be performing a subset of experiments from this book, you may be able to strike some items from the list.
