  1. equation for Force
    • F=ma
    • (force=mass x acceleration)
  2. equation for Work Done?
    • Wd=F x D
    • (Work Done= Force x Distance)
  3. equation for Power?
    • P=Wd over T
    • Power= Work done over time
  4. Equation for Weight?
    • W=mg
    • (Weight= mass x gravity)
  5. equation for Kinetic Energy
    • KE=half of m x v squared
    • Kinetic Energy = half of mass x velocity squared
  6. equation for Gravitational Potential Energy?
    • GPE=mgh
    • Gravitational Potential Energy= mass x gravity x height
