General Comments: Tips on getting the most out of your formula card: Understand what each symbol stands for. Don’t get confused between similar symbols (e.g., g and G). Understand what the formula means physically. You may want to write the formulae in words when you study. Also, understand what plain English words relate to what quantity : e.g. “how fast is the particle moving” --> v =?, “how big is the orbit” ---> r = ?
