This sticky is meant to be a repository for some basic equations commonly used in elementary physics that might prove handy to homework posters and homework helpers. The equations will be in Latex format so you can quickly copy them. (For more about Latex, go here: https://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?t=8997.)

This is not meant to be an exhaustive reference list of all physics formulae, just a handy guide and time saver.

The posts are not intended as tutorials: You'd better know what an equation means before you use it. (Although I will include a few notes.)

If you have suggestions or corrections, just send me a PM. I'll be adding posts on various topics as time permits.
