Things to remember for AS Mechanics
The SUVAT Equations
$V=U+AT$
$S=\left(\frac{U+V}{2}\right)T$
$V^2=U^2+2AS$
$S=UT+\frac{1}{2}AT^2$
$S=VT-\frac{1}{2}AT^2$
Variable Acceleration
${\bf v}=\frac{d{\bf r}}{dt}$
${\bf a}=\frac{d{\bf v}}{dt}=\frac{d^2{\bf r}}{dt^2}$
${\bf v}=\int{\bf a}dt$
${\bf r}=\int{\bf v}dt=\int\left(\int{\bf a}dt\right)dt$
Other
Gravity
: $g=9.8m/s^2$
Resultant Force
: $F=ma$
Friction
: $F\leq \mu R$, at maximum when object is moving or about to move.
