"Fermi problems" (Piano tuners, oil consumption, water usage, electricity usage) Avogadro's Number:  N o  = 6.0 x 10 23 1 Mole (of substance with atomic mass number [or atomic weight] A)  = A grams, which contains  N o  units speed or velocity = v = distance/time or   v = d/t acceleration = change of velocity over time =  v /  t acceleration due to gravity = g = 9.8 m/s 2              d = (1/2)gt 2 Force = mass  ×  acceleration        Work = force  ×  distance       Power = Energy/time waves: disturbances of a medium that propagate due to elasticity of the medium
