What is the formula for "translational motion"?
x=x_{0}+v_{0}t+1/2at^{2
}Where x = distance (meters), v = velocity(meters/sec), a = acceleration(meters/sec/sec or meters/sec^{2}), and t = time(sec).

What is the formula for "frictional force"?
Where (mu) is the frictional coefficient and Fn is the normal force.

Formula for velocity?
v = d / t

Formula(s) for distance?
 d = vt
 d = v_{avg} t
 d = v_{initial }t + 1/2 a t^{2}
d = 1/2 a t ^{2 }<when at rest

Formula for velocity when no time avail?
v_{final}^{2 }= v_{initial}^{2 }+ 2 a d

Velocity formulas for projectile motion?
v_{yinitial }= v sin (theta)
v_{x} = v cos (theta)

Time to projectile motion max height?
t_{up }= 0  v_{yinitial} / g
Where g = gravity

Projectile motion max height?
y_{max }= v_{yinitial}/ 2 * t

Formula for weight?
W = mg

Formula for force between two objects?
F = G * m_{1} m_{2} / r^{2}_{}
Where G = gravitation constant, m_{1} = mass of 1st object, m_{2} = mass of 2nd object, and r = radius

Formula for centripital acceleration?
a = v^{2} / r

Centripital force?
F = m a_{c}

Formula for work?
W = f d
Where force is only in the direction of motion

Formula for kinetic energy?
KE = 1/2 mv^{2}

Formula for potential energy?
PE = mgh
