Discounted Prices

Amt of discount/original price= % of reduction

% of reduction x 100 = final answer %

Traveling/Gas Mileage/Avg Speed

Gallons of gas used* mpg= total miles traveled

Miles traveled/avg speed= hours

Movable Pulleys

Provide mechanical advantage


Use floats to measure gravity

Mechanical Advantage in Pistons
a^2 x d^2= a1 x d1

a= area, d= displacement


First Class: Fulcrum is in the middle (scissors)

Second Class: Fulcrum is at one end, load is in between (nutcrackers)

Third Class: Fulcrum is at one end, effort is in between (tongs)

The further away the fulcrum is from the resistance arm...

The greater amount of force that is required to lift the weight and the higher the resistance arm will travel

Potential Energy

Energy stored in an object

Kinetic Energy

Energy in motion


Measures current flow in a circut


Measures voltage


Measures voltage and current flow

Newton's 1st law

Object in motion will stay in motion; Object at rest will stay at rest

Newton's 2nd Law

Force= Mass x Acceleration

Newton's 3rd Law
For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction


Mass x Gravity



Current x Resistance

V= I x R

Finds voltage drops across a current or a single resistor

I= Q/T

Current= Charge/Time


Rate x Time

Area of a right triangle

A= 1/2b x h

Area of a rectangle/parallelogram


Area of a trapezoid

A= 1/2(b1+b2)h

Area of a circle

A= πr^2

Circumference of a circle

C= 2πr or C= πd

r= radius, d= diameter

Pythagorean Theorem

a^2 + b^2 = c^2

I= interest

p= principal

r= rate

t= time

Compound Interest

A= P(1+(r/n))^nt

A= amount accumulated after n years

P= principal amount

r= rate

n= number of times interest is compounded

t= time
