With equations or facts that are not given in textbooks?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Just things that can help you solve problems faster with general basic physics

for example, the acceleration of a block on a frictionless incline is gsin(theta)

the volume displaced by a block in a water is (volume of block) * (specific gravity of block)

or, in hydraulic lifts, F1/A1 = F2/A2, F1d1 = F2d2

or, fraction submerged of something (x) in a water is = the specific gravity of x

or, the max height of a projectile can be solved by vsin(theta) = sqrt(2gh)

things like that :)
