Chapter 1 Motion, Forces, and Energy

  • Calculation of two vectors at right angles (previously, you only had to draw)

  • The gravitational acceleration constant has been updated from 10 m/s^2 to 9.8 m/s^2 (more in line with college and university)

  • Removal of barometer and manometer

  • Added Sankey Diagrams

Chapter 2 Thermal Physics

  • Removal of Specific Latent Heat

  • Removal of measurement of temperature

  • Added conversion from Celsius to Kelvin

  • Thermocouple removed.

Chapter 3 Waves

  • Added digital and analog signals

Chapter 4 Electricity and Magnetism

  • Removal of logic gates

Chapter 5 Nuclear Physics

  • No changes

Chapter 6 Space Physics (an entirely new chapter! yay)
