AP Free Response Essays

The Collegeboard has released past AP Physics B free response questions and solutions from 1999-2018. They have also released past materials for their calculus-based physics courses from 1999 through 2018 through the links The Exam on each course's homepage: AP Physics C Mechanics and AP Physics C Electricity and Magnetism.

Consequently I have released FRQs from the same years. Now you can view the FRQ listed from any search during this time period.

Our collection includes Free Response Questions (FRQs) - or what I used to call AP Essays - from 1973-2018 for the Physics B course as well as the AP Physics C Mechanics and the AP Physics C Electricity and Magnetism courses. The results of our site-based search will provide students and teachers with the ability to locate practice questions on a given topic of study or keyword. Any FRQs not accessible through the Collegeboard website will remain IP restricted and will forward you to a restricted notification; however, the search results can provide guidance in searching elsewhere.

During the school year 2014-2015, the AP B-course was replaced by two courses called AP Physics 1 and AP Physics 2. Past free response questions for these new courses, accompanied by their solutions and scoring guidelines, can also be accessed on the Collegeboard website through the links The Exam on each course's homepage: AP Physics 1 and AP Physics 2. We have not included FRQs from these two new courses in this compendium.

If a query returns 1999B1 that would mean that the first free response question on the AP Physics B exam in 1999 fit the search criteria. The results are presented chronologically.
