Here's the laws of physics to remember


Newton's Laws[edit | edit source]

Kinetic energy increases at the square of its speed.

Inertia is gives us weight transfer placing more weight on the front axle during braking.

Levers[edit | edit source]

First-class Lever
This lever multiplies applied force and changes the direction
Second-class Lever
This lever multiplies applied force along the same direction
Third-class Lever
This lever reduces force for more travel

Pascal's Law[edit | edit source]

Ohm's Law[edit | edit source]
