AP Physics 1 is algebra-based and does not require calculus, though concepts of calculus are applied. The topics studied are typical of a college Physics 101 course. (Motion, forces, energy, and momentum).  The AP Physics 1 Exam requires more writing than a typical college Physics course and the AP Physics C courses.
 
The two AP Physics C courses apply, and thus require, calculus. Science and engineering majors are typically expected to take calculus-based Physics in college.  AP Physics C: Mechanics covers topics studied in a first semester Physics course (Motion, forces, energy, and momentum).  E&M is short for electricity and magnetism, and AP Physics C: E&M covers topics typically studied in a second semester Physics course (Electric fields and forces, voltage, circuits, magnetism, and electromagnetism.)
