As an MCAT tutor, one of the common questions I receive is “How do I know which equations to use?” With so many formulas to memorize it's hard to keep them all straight, and even harder to pick out one from the many many formuals you've studied.
The video below breaks down the different kinematic equations looking at them from many different aspects to ensure you understand their relationships. The video also shows you how to analyze any given kinematics problem to quickly and easily recognize the appropriate kinematic equation based on the data provided and tested.
