Kinematic Equations
\begin{equation*} v_f = v_i + at \end{equation*} \begin{equation*} v_f^2 = v_i^2 + 2ad \end{equation*} \begin{equation*} \Delta x = x_0 + v_i \cdot t + \frac{1}{2} a t^2 \end{equation*}
Elasticity and Simple Harmonic Motion
\begin{equation*} F = -k \cdot \Delta x \end{equation*} \begin{equation*} T_{spring} = 2 \pi \sqrt{\frac{m}{k}} \end{equation*} \begin{equation*} T_{pendulum} = 2 \pi \sqrt{\frac{L}{G}} \end{equation*}
Energy, Work, and Power
\begin{equation*} E = PE + KE \end{equation*} \begin{equation*} PE = mgh \end{equation*} \begin{equation*} KE = \frac{1}{2} m v^2 \end{equation*}
