Ok, not all, but still a considerable amount of "situational" kinematics problems (for example there's a context or "situation" and you answer questions). Also for reference I'm an IB year 1 student. Usually what I do with such problems is read the problem once, write down known variables, write down unknown variables, make links between variables (if any) and finally I try to think about which equations may relate better to finding one or more unknown variables. Occasionally, this works fine. But then comes along certain problems that I just can't figure no matter what... So my question is, how do you guys (who are probably far more advance and this may seem like nothing) deal with kinematics in general??? P.S.: I noticed there's a Homework Help section....but I'm studying in FRENCH. I was thinking about translating the problems before posting, but man I'm probably sure this won't really help anyone trying to assist me.
