Hi, my name is Stefan. Today, I'm going to be speaking on how to learn physics formulas. A great way to learn physics formulas is to try and relate it to the real world and how it comes up in the real world, let's say for example the momentum equals the mass times velocity. What you want to do is try and equate that to something that you do all the time. You're always driving your car and there's always going to be the mass of your car or your car mass and the speed of your car. Try to relate it to things that you know, things you are familiar with and also it's also good to make side notes of the formulas when you write them down. You know the way I wrote momentum equals mass times velocity, just put down side notes like I did like the car, how much it weights and the speed of the car and this way it gets in your brain because it's something that's more relative to what you understand and that's a great way to understand and learn physics formulas.
