No. That's the formula booklet that you are given in the exam.
No, these are all the ones you are given in the exam.

Ah great thanks.
Off the top of my head, there aren't too many equations you have to actually memorise. Most of the ones you have to memorise are quite simple, with the most complicated one being the cosine law.

The ones that you have to remember (which first come to mind) are as follows:

-Areas of simple 2D shapes, e.g squares, circles, triangles.

-Volumes of cubes and simple prisms

-The sine and cosine laws

-SOH CAH TOA

-The nth terms of arithmetic and geometric progessions in terms of a, n, r and d

-speed = distance/time

-Frictional force

-Moment = force x distance

Those are mostly covered at GCSE so that’s reassuring. Thank you!
