    Mechanics is easy if you get it. Statistics has the option to just regurgitate everything.

    conservation of energy is also a pretty useful concept.
    as are velocity and kinematics, resolution of forces, momentum, magnus force etc etc.

    Understanding this stuff at a reasonable level helps you do all sort of things, from throwing a frisbee to playing pool to propping up a ladder to levering open a manhole cover to...
