### Overview

FRQs are free response questions. You will need to complete 5 FRQ questions in 90 minutes on the AP Physics 1 exam. This post should help you better sort through FRQs to get the practice you need!

NOTE: Most questions have **multiple** topics in it so some FRQs may be in multiple topic lists.
