Formulas on Motion

The speed of an object travelling a distace $d$ in time $t$ is given by \begin{align} v=\frac{d}{t} \end{align}

The average speed of an object is the ratio of total distance travelled to the total time.

The velocity of an object is given by \begin{align} \text{velocity}=\frac{\text{displacement}}{\text{time}}=\frac{s}{t} \end{align}

The acceleration of an object whose velocity changes from $v_1$ to $v_2$ in time $t$ is \begin{align} a=\frac{v_2-v_1}{t}. \end{align}

An object starts its motion with initial velocity $u$ and moves with a constant acceleration $a$. Its velocity $v$ and displacement $s$ at time $t$ are given by \begin{align} v=u+at\\ s=ut+\frac{1}{2}at^2 \\ v^2=u^2+2as \end{align}

Formulas on force and laws of motion

The linear momentum of an object of mass $m$ moving with a velocity $v$ is given by \begin{align} p=mv \end{align}

The force on an object of mass $m$ accelerating with an acceleration $a$ is given by \begin{align} F=ma \end{align}

The linear momentum of system is conserved if external force on the system is zero. It is very useful in collisions. \begin{align} m_1u_1+m_2u_2=m_1v_1+m_2v_2 \end{align}

Formulas on Gravitation

The attractive force between two particles of masses $M$ and $m$ separated by a distance $d$ is given by \begin{align} F=\frac{GMm}{d^2}, \end{align} where $G=6.67\times10^{-11}\;\mathrm{N\,m^2\,kg^{-2}}$.

Let $M$ be the mass and $R$ be the radius of the earth. The acceleration due to gravity at a distance $d\,(>R)$ from the centre of the earth is given by \begin{align} g=\frac{GM}{d^2}. \end{align} The acceleration due to gravity on the surface of the earth is \begin{align} g=\frac{GM}{R^2}=9.8\,\mathrm{m/s^2}. \end{align}

The weight $W$ of an object of mass $m$ is equal to gravitaional force on the object \begin{align} W=mg \end{align}

The pressure $p$ when a thrust (force) $F$ acts perpendicular to an area $A$ is given by \begin{align} p=\frac{F}{A} \end{align} The SI unit of pressure is N/m2.

The relative density is of a substance is the ratio of its density to the density of the water \begin{align} \rho_\text{relative}=\frac{\rho_\text{substance}}{\rho_\text{water}} \end{align}

Formulas on Work and Energy

The work done by a force $F$min displacing and object by displacement $s$ in the direction of force is given by \begin{align} W=Fs \end{align}

The kinetic energy of an object of mass $m$ moving with a velocity $v$ is given by \begin{align} K=\frac{1}{2}mv^2 \end{align}

The gravitational potential energy of an object of mass $m$ placed at a height $h$ (above the earth's surface) is given by \begin{align} U=mgh \end{align}

Formulas on Sound

The frequency $\nu$ and time period $T$ are related by \begin{align} \nu=\frac{1}{T}. \end{align}

The velocity $v$ of a wave of frequency $\nu$ and wavelength $\lambda$ is given by \begin{align} v=\nu\lambda. \end{align}
