Let's study physics!
Study guide for a second exam of PHY111 (The first course of algebra-based introductory physics)
Here are my suggestions: Make sure which constant is used in which system.
For the items marked with (*), you should fully understand the steps shown.
Don't be rash during the exam. If you finished earlier, I recommend you go over the problems.
For the equilibrium of torques, please don't forget the signs of these.
A clockwise torque is negative, and a counter-clockwise one is positive.
If there is an angle between the lever arm and force acting on the point, you have to
take the angle into account (such as a ladder problem).
