## Advanced Physics Demystified

I spent June and July working through Advanced Physics Demystified and finished the final exam (a lengthy 100 multiple choice question test).  The advice the author gives is good, have a friend grade the quiz and exam, and tell you your score, but not which you got right or wrong.  This really allows you to work through the process of self-assessment.

I’d say this book is a very curious one, not an overview, yet not focused well.  It offers some topics clearly, and yet I was put off by the fact that some relationships were re-arranged and offered as “different” equations (F=ma, a=F/m, etc.)

I did find it useful and put together a summary though I’m too pressed right now to re-latex it for the blog.

Equations of motion arise from simple integration on $t$, including $x = \frac{1}{2} at^2 + v_0t + x_0$.   Impulse is $\textbf{J}=\textbf{F}t$
