To be honest, I was hesitant when I was asked to take AP Physics B two years ago. I certainly had no idea what to expect. As it turns out, I wasn't disappointed. The class itself was intriguing and it motivated me to continue my education in Physics.
As a student pilot, I became interested in how the fluid dynamics actually played out in the air. Last year gave me some important insight on that topic. I became interested in physics beyond the areas of last year, leading me to enroll in this class.
I suppose I'm taking AP-C for the experience; that's what I want out of this class. I aspire to be a full time pilot (with a mechanical engineering major), and the knowledge (and maybe the college credits) will certainly come in handy.
This year, I hope to expand my interest and skill in the physical setting. I have big expectations for myself in this class, and I'm interested to see how well I can do.
I'm very excited about going further into E & M, because I feel like I never actually grasped the concepts last year. However, the math itself will be challenging, and that's what I'm mainly anxious about as I go through these first few weeks of senior year.
Since flying is easily my favorite thing to do, I couldn't think of a class that applied any better to flight than physics.
So, Physics C, bring it on.
