How did you find PF?
Hello, I am new to this website and just don't get everything yet (like attempt to a solution). I'm in the third grade of highschool and this is my first year of having physics as a apart subject.

For schoolwork-related problems, post in the Homework Help forums and fill out the Template that you are provided there when starting a new schoolwork thread. That includes the Problem Statement, the Relevant Equations, and your Attempt at the Solution. Always show your work on the problem so that we can then provide tutorial help.

The Homework Statement is where you list the problem word-for-word as it is given to you. You can also upload a PDF or JPEG image of the problem if that helps, but it's usually required that you type the problem in as well. The Relevant Equations section is to help you think about and list the equations and formulas and concepts that may be helpful in working the problem. You then show your work in the section below (the main body of the thread start).

To post math equations, it's best to use the LaTeX engine that PF provides. There is a helpful "LaTeX Guide" link below the Edit window to get you started. Note that you put double-\$ delimiters at the start and end of each stand-alone line of LaTeX, and double-# delimiters at the start and end of in-line LaTeX that does not need to be on its own line. Also, if you right-click on a LaTeX equation in a post, you get a pop-up menu to let you view the LaTeX source or view it in other formats.
