Physics final coming up when to use which principles?

  1. May 5, 2015 #1
    Hello everyone!
    I have my physics for engineering 1 final coming up at the Univ. of Minnesota and before I indulge into the problems, I wanted to run through when to use certain approaches such as kinematics, Newton's second law, Momentum, Energy, Rotation, and Torque. What I mean is when your given a question, what hints should you look for when you read through the problems.
    Thank you for your future responses!

    I don't want to send you into a panic, but that question strikes me as one you shouldn't have to ask shortly before your finals. I mean, the only answer one can give to your very broad question is "you use the tool when the situation calls for it".
