    Can someone help me gather all the formulas we need to learn for Mechanics 1 Edexel As Maths.

    Like I know there are 4 constant acceleration formulas

    v=u+at

    s=1/2(v+u)t

    S=ut+1/2at^2

    v^2=u^2+2as

    The area of trapezium for the velocity-time graphs

    Area=1/2(a+b)h

    Quadratic

    x=-b?b^2-4ac
    2a

    Sine rule

    Sin A / a = Sin B / b = Sin C / c

    Cosine rule c^2= a^2+ b^2 - 2abcosC

    There are loads more but I cant find my notes so could you please help

    Thanks

    S=vt-1/2vt^2
    F=ma
    Impulse = m(v-u)
    Friction \leq\mu R
    weight = mass * g
    Equilibrium: Total force = 0

    I found this amusing - did you not notice any connection here .... ?

    Nah what I do is simply hammer the information into my head. Helps me sleep at night. And Potassium^2 thanks. Is that all of them?

    Impulse = m(v-u) = Ft

    Momentum is conserved during a collision, so: m1*u1 + m2*u2 = m1*v1 + m2*v2 (where m1, u1, v1, m2, u2, v2 are the mass, initial speed and final speed of particles 1 and 2 respectively.)

    Also, when taking a moment, you need to know the perpendicular distance from the pivot. So either Moment = Force * distance (if the force is applied at a right angle) or Moment = F * d sin x (where x is the angle at which the force is applied).


    You also need to know that for a vector a = (xi + yj), the magnitude of a = |a| = square root of (x^2 + y^2)
