# Physics Formulas watch

1. Hi there this may have already been done and said but I cant seem to find it on this part of the forum.

I was just wondering if we could all post up the main formulas that will be needed for AS-Level and A-Level physics. I wil appreciate any help on this post. I thinki that this could help people. However if this type of thread has already been posted could anyone tell me where to find it.

thank you very much
2. what board are you doing? because there are some differenced between the OCR and AQA. im doing OCR and all the equations are at the back of the text book.
3. This might not be of much help, but the Scottish Qualification Authority gives us a data booklet up here that we actually get to use in the exam (this only got introduced last year, it has it's good and bad points). If you would like a copy of the data booklet, you can get one online here. There will probably be slight differences between our higher/advanced higher courses and your AS/A2 courses though, so you may not get everything you need in there.
4. formulae
5. I was given a formulae sheet so i guess i'm lucky
6. For Edexcel, all the formulae needed for the AS and A2 syllabus can be found on pages 88 to 96 (on the Edexcel document) on the specification or pages 92 to 100 (according to Adobe Reader).
7. I always been advised to learn the formulae
Reason being, if you are familiar with the topics you should get to the stage where you remember them

Frankly anyone who has to look up (say) GPE = mgh on a formula sheet is going to struggle in a physics A level exam

I always just derive some equation on the spot using limits and dimentional analysis.

bearing in mind you're at IC that doesn't surprise me...

lmao don't believe a word of it, he still has to look up F=ma
