    they dont give any formulas....
    an example question in the spec paper is ..
    Write down the equation that links mass, momentum and velocity
    this is the most you are told..but sometimes you have to know what equation to use without any hints

    specimen paper had to be published at the very latest by the time schools started in September 06 (as this was when the first people taking this new course would start school) and since then they probably changed their minds..

    In all the papers up to now they've provided formulae, but they still put it in the specification so it is probably best to learn them, if it was definite that you don't need to know them they should at least put a notice up on the site!

    They definitley give you all the formula, at least they did in the Jan 08 P2 & both P1's. They just want you to rearrange it. Specimen papers are often useless. BTW this is for written not multiple choice.

    no there's a lot more to it than the formula.

    I'd say just learn them.
    They tend to make sense anyway if you think about them and learning them will bring the rest of the topic back to your mind.

    Yeah, thay give you all the formula, you normally just have to rearrange it and then do the calculations from there.

    Learn the units and learn how to rearrange them, especially kinetic energy.
