Studying for a physics exam

  1. Apr 3, 2007 #1
    i need tips on how to get a mark on the physics exam coming up in 2 weeks. I have trouble connected concepts with problem-solving; for example i know archimedes principle for buoyant force but have trouble solving problems related to finding tension in a suspended mass in water. So any tips on how to do well would be great! Thanks o:)
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Do lots and lots of practice problems. That is the best way to learn how concepts can be used to solve problems. It will also give you experience and familiarity with the types of problems that could come up on the test. Make sure you understand the physical meaning behind fundamental concepts and equations.
