This is only a preliminary list. It will be improved to include much more and should come in handy for techies, engineers, students, and anyone looking for that elusive formula. (I used to HATE this stuff in HS but now I have to work with it daily!) If there is a formula that you need that is missing E-mail me and I will add it or get back to you. And if anything here is wrong (typos, etc) I apologize in advance but I cannot be held responsible for failed Mars missions and the like. If you have any doubts cross check the formula before launching that satellite and by all means let me know about the error!!!
