Frequently Asked Questions
1. Is there an equation sheet?
YES! The equation sheet is provided to students.
However, it does NOT include all possible formulas that might be useful on the contest.
The following is a link to the most recent version of the equation sheet. Equation Sheet for 2022
2. Will the constants be provided?
Some constants are provided. All constants on the equation sheet are used in the exam construction.
Again, this is NOT an exhaustive list of all constants, but the ones most commonly used.

3. What assumed conventions are used on the exam?
The assumptions used in the contest construction are typically used in textbooks. Here are some of the working assumptions: • g = 10 m/s2 • All currents are conventional unless otherwise noted. • "A person launches an object from the top of a 10-meter-high building..." assumes that the object is 10 meters off the ground when thrown... if the height of the person is required for the question, it will be made clear from the context. • While important in science, unless otherwise noted, significant figures are not considered in the problem (although we try to keep things reasonable). • All masses are rest masses (unless otherwise noted).
