**Formulas for Test 3**

**Test 3
will cover homeworks 10 to 15 (i.e. Chaps. 15, 16,
17, 19, 20, 21)**

Speed or velocity = change in distance/change in time, v =
d/t [Units: m/s]

Acceleration = change in velocity/change in time, a = (v_{f} - v_{i})/t [Units: m/s/s or m/s^{2}]

For acceleration under gravity (starting from rest at time t
= 0s): g = 10m/s^{2}

v = gt

d = 0.5gt^{2}

Net force, F_{net} = ma
[Units: N]

Weight, W = mg [Units: N]

Momentum, p = mv [Units: kg m/s]

Impulse = F_{net}t
= change in momentum = p_{f} - p_{i}

Kinetic energy, KE = 0.5mv^{2} [Units: J]

Gravitational potential energy, GPE = mgh
[Units: J]

Work, W = Fd [Units: J]

Gravitational force, F = GM_{1}M_{2}/r^{2}
[Units: N]

For molecules at a particular temperature T, KE = 0.5mv^{2}
= 3k_{B}T/2

Heat energy, Q = mcDT [Units: J]

Heat energy, Q = mL [Units: J]

Wave speed, v = fl
[Units: m/s]

Wave frequency, f = 1/T where T is the period in seconds [Units for frequency: Hz = 1/s]

**USEFUL DATA:**

Speed of sound in air = 330m/s

Speed of light in a vacuum (or in air) = 3 x 10^{8}m/s
= 300,000,000 m/s
