    Hey guys, this year im doing S1 and next year I decides to do M1 instead of S2, because im doing physics so I guess itll be easier than S2. My question is, is mechanics in A level maths the same/similar as mechanics in physics?

    I'm currently doing M1 in year 13 after doing AS physics, and it's almost entirely covered by the mechanics that you do in physics (I do edexcel maths and AQA physics). The only thing that's in M1 and not physics was the coefficient of friction, which is really simple to understand if you already know how to deal with forces etc.

    M2 contains a lot more than mechanics in physics, but from what I can tell you aren't going to be doing that.
