# What equations are not given in the formula booklet? watch

1. Hi, I'm doing AQA AS Physics (the new spec) and it seems like most of the formulas are given to us in the formula booklet but I was wondering if there's a list somewhere with all the formulas not given that we need to remember?

Thanks
2. Look on the website for AQA. There is a pdf of the formula booklet you get in the exam.

Every equation you don't get given on the booklet can be derived from first principles in F=ma (but I wouldn't advise that, it's a very long way around!).

I think pretty much all the ones you'd ever need and would be asked on are the ones in the booklet so don't worry ^-^

IMO most of the problem is remembering what all the letters and symbols stand for... but make sure you can rearrange the equations for exponential decay e.g. capacitors and radioactive decay.

i.e.

N=N0e-λt
ln N - ln N0=-λt
