Some formulae for AH Physics

$implĄ_®i˘h

Posted 05 February 2005 - 09:58 PM

I know that this post by ally is in the AH Maths bit too, but i though that id post this here too, as from pages 4 onwards of this pdf there are some Physics formuale, which might be helpful to you.

You can download the PDF here.

whoa do you actually do all of that in AH Math!? ohmy.gif (minus mechanics/phy)

Yeah, unfortunately we have to do alot of it and it kind of sucks cause its so much to remember. Matrices, trig crap, billions of calculus and algabra......bla bla bla ph34r.gif

Trying to remember is the hardest thing of all. I think that they should allow some sort of data book in the exam. Our brains are like swelling up with all this stuff you have to know and its like whoa man the heck is this all about, but we try our best.

Right, but you surely don't do ALL of it right. Say you did pure + applied, you just have a limited amount of say mechanics. er lol. unsure.gif

Yeah we dont have to do all of that stuff. I dont use AH maths stuff in AH Physics work.

The thing with maths right- theres so many techniques to learn that you end up forgetting half of it huh.gif so basically you need to have photogaphic memory to become a mathamatical genius. I have a good memory but no way a photographic one so theres always work to be done.

do you use the maclaurin series in advanced maths?

Yeah we use the maclaurin series in unit 3 of AH Maths cool.gif

hey everyone, this site is gives the actual data book that we will use in the exam:

Nice! That'll be printed up and it'll go on my wall. biggrin.gif

My favourite equation at the moment is:



 m= \frac {m_o} {\sqrt{1 - \frac {v^2} {c^2}}}


The Wedge Effect

You have a favourite equation? blink.gif

Mine'd have to be 

\begin{align*}Satsifaction = \frac {Beer\, and \,curries\, consumed}{hunger\,and\,thirst}\end{align*}

I actually like the formula:



\begin{align*}\frac {d^2\psi}{dx^2} + \frac {d^2\psi}{dy^2} + \frac {d^2\psi}{dz^2} + \frac {\theta \pi^2m}{h^2} (E-v)\psi = 0\end{align*}

mainly because it's the most complicated formula I know (Schrodinger's wave equation)
