I have troubles relating the idea with the formulas

  1. Nov 23, 2012 #1
    I have a problem with physics when it comes to relating new ideas with new formulas. Like right now I'm learning about Solids and Fluids, and the problem i have now is remember what formulas to use when, what each of the parts of the formula mean, etc. Is there a site or a list of questions that I can use to self test? I just need a general list of questions so that I can test myself on whatever material I am covering.

    When you have a formula, do you work on it's derivation in as much detail as possible? You might want to do it, it would give you a lot of insight on when a certain formula is applicable and not.

    Also, solving lots of problem is usually helpful with familiarizing yourself with it.
