Mechanics Keys
d = 0.5 g t2
Fg = (G m1 m2 )/r2
g = (4 p L)/t2
P = F/A
r = m/V
v = d/t
W = Fd (dot product)
T = F d (cross product)

A = Area
d = distance
F = Force
Fg = Force of gravitational attraction
g = acceleration of gravity
G = 6.67 x 10-11
L = Length
m = mass
P = Pressure
r = density
p = 3.141592
r = radius
t = time
T = Torque
v = velocity
V = Volume
W = Energy or Work (usually Joules)
Q = m c DT
DL = a Li DT
DT = Tf - Ti

a = coeficient of linear friction
c = specific heat capacity
= change in
DT = change in Temperature
Li = initial length
m = mass
Q = Energy or Work ( usually in calories)
Tf = final Temperature
Ti = initial Temperature
v = f l
f = 1/t
f = frequency
l = wavelength
v = velocity
t = period
Fe = [(9109) q1 q2 ]/r2
i = q/t
P = i V
V = i R
P = i2 R
i = current
P = power
q = charge
R = Resistance
t = time
V = Voltage
