Think like a physicist!

If you practice your tennis forehand, you can guarantee that your tennis results will improve even though you’ll never play two identical forehands because each game situation is unique.

In a similar way to your forehand. you can also develop your equation-handling skills to enable you to solve all kinds of problems that are like this one, even if they’re not exactly the same.

Note

Grooving your physics skills means that you can solve all kinds of problems, not just ones you’ve memorized.

Throughout your physics career (and definitely in your exam) you’ll be interpreting graphs and working out equations from them. If you want to understand what’s going on and do well in physics, you need to be able to rearrange equations, make substitutions and check your answers. Which is what you’ve been practicing in this chapter.
