Re: Most useful basic equations/reference for FRC/FTC?
More important than all of these equations is knowing how to use them as is the case with just about every equation. Each of these alone is relatively useless if you can't correlate the problem to the equation correctly.
Just a simple example, ∑F=Ma is an incredibly useful formula, but if you don't know how to create a Free Body Diagram that accurately depicts how the forces are acting on the bodies the equation won't get you much further than 1D problems. That knowledge and understanding takes time and education (self or otherwise), and luckily in this day and age there are a multitude of resources that can help cultivate that knowledge and turn it into a skill.

My original post was a joke, but knowing how to derive things from F=ma (ie knowing physics concepts and how they relate) is the far more important part.
