Essential Physics Formulas & Equations

Mechanics

Kinetic Energy

Kinetic energy = ½ x mass x velocity squared

(J) (kg) (m/s)

Gravitational Potential Energy (GPE)

GPE = mass x gravitational field strength x height

(J) (kg) (N/kg) (m)

Weight

Weight = Mass x Gravity

N = kg x N/kg

Density

DENSITY (ρ – greek letter) = mass (m) / volume (v)

Resultant Force

RESULTANT FORCE = MASS X ACCELERATION

F = m x a

Force (Springs)

FORCE = SPRING CONSTANT x EXTENSION

N =

Animal Behavior: Migration, Kin Selection, and Social Dynamics

Migration

  • Monarch butterflies use the position of the sun as a sun compass to guide their migration.
  • Polar bears are the world’s largest terrestrial carnivores, hunt seals in the winter on pack ice, and tend to lose body mass in the summer.
  • The avian migrant that makes the longest non-stop flight of any land or shorebird is the bar-tailed godwit, which can fly for 3 to 8 days.
  • In animals, the pacemaker is an internal clock in the brain that may regulate migratory behavior, feeding behavior, the release
