Happy Tuesday, friends Worldwide from Dr. TJ Gunn in Houston Texas USA… The tension on an object is equal to the mass of the object x gravitational force plus/minus the mass x acceleration. T = mg + ma T = tension, N, kg-m/s2 m = mass, kg g = gravitational force, 9.8 m/s2 a = […]

## Potential Energy: Two-Body Gravitation Formula

Happy Tuesday, friend Worldwide from Dr. TJ Gunn in Houston Texas USA….. Potential energy is energy that is stored in a system. There is the possibility, or potential, for it to be converted to kinetic energy. Any two objects with mass are attracted to each other by gravity. In space, it is possible to find […]

## Wavelength Formula

Happy Sunday friends Worldwide from Dr. TJ Gunn in Houston Texas.. Wavelength Formula Wavelength is the distance between the crests of a wave. Many different things can move like waves, like strings, water, the air (sound waves), the ground (earthquakes), and light can be treated as a wave. Wavelength is represented with the Greek letter […]

## Velocity Formula

Happy Saturday friends Worldwide from Dr. TJ Gunn in Houston USA Velocity is a measure of how quickly an object moves. So, the velocity is the change in the position of an object, divided by the time. Velocity has a magnitude (a value) and a direction. The unit for velocity is meters per second (m/s). […]

## Frequency Formula

Happy Saturday friends Worldwide from Dr. TJ Gunn in Houston USA Frequency is the number of cycles in a unit of time. The “cycles” can be movements of anything with periodic motion, like a spring, a pendulum, something spinning, or a wave. Frequency is equal to 1 divided by the period, which is the time […]

## Frequency Formula

TGIF, friends Worldwide from Dr. TJ Gunn in Houston Texas USA……. Frequency is the number of cycles in a unit of time. The “cycles” can be movements of anything with periodic motion, like a spring, a pendulum, something spinning, or a wave. Frequency is equal to 1 divided by the period, which is the time […]

## Force Formula

TGIF, Friends Worldwide from Dr. TJ Gunn in Houston Texas USA…… Force is the mass of an object, multiplied by its acceleration. The unit of force is . This is called a Newton, with the symbol N. Force has a magnitude and a direction. force = mass x acceleration F = ma F = force m […]

## Acceleration Formula

TGIF, friends Worldwide from Dr. TJ Gunn in Houston Texas, USA…… Acceleration is a measure of how quickly the velocity of an object changes. So, the acceleration is the change in the velocity, divided by the time. Acceleration has a magnitude (a value) and a direction. The direction of the acceleration does not have to […]
