The top equation can be used to calculate escape velocity of a body.

Line five: From which the eccentricity of the orbit can be calculated.
Line six: To pin down a satellite's orbit in space, need to know the angle from the perlapsis point to the launch point.
Line seven: The drag FD on a body is calculated by the equation.
Line eight: Mach number is given by.
Line nine: c is the acoustic velocity and is calculated by the equation
k is the specific heat ration equal to 1.40
R is the gas constant equal to 1,715 ft-lb/slug-R
Line ten: Thrust.
Line eleven: momentum, of a particle is the product of its mass and its velocity.
Line twelve: Second law of motion.

This is going to sound arrogant, but hear me out.   
   
People need to stop acting like this is scary. This is why many educational systems are failing. People set up physics to be this big, horrifying, math version of brain surgery, and it totally is, before you actually learn what it means. But once you actually learn what all the terms mean, it's literally the most universal, straightforward thing there is. I mean come on. You see some weird Greek symbols and **** in there, but all that takes is for someone to tell you what they mean. Do you see a single mathematical operation that you didn't learn by high school? I certainly hope not. And seeing and feeling those equations in action just makes it easier.   
   
I really am sorry for people that legitimately don't get it, because you have been intimidated and let down by the world at large, and that's a damn shame. You should be angry, and you should demand that the problem be fixed, because voices are important.   
   
Sorry for the long rant, but I really think scientific and mathematical education is much easier than culture makes it appear, and if that was fixed, the world would be much better off.

I totally agree with you, 100% whole-heatedly. Mainly because when I wanted to do physics and the higher level maths as subjects last year for grade 11 (and by extension, into year 12-University), but my brother who was doing it then, said I shouldn't do it because of my ADHD, so I didn't. But now I see what they did when I wanted to do it, a lot of it seems quite simple and easy. So, what I've done since then, is pretty much what you've said, I've told people to just give it a try for a semester. It's working, for my school at least.

Yeah I agree with you, even though it has been a few years since high school and I don't study anything related to physics I still remember what some of these symbols/terms mean. It isn't really that hard if you got someone who can explain it really well

It's actually a bunch of set equations-- equations that physicists have figured out always apply in nature, and can be used in various situations. For example, Fg=G(m1+m2)/rr^2. Seems intimidating, right? It's not. It basically just says that the force of gravity (Fg) can always be calculated by plugging in the universal gravitational constant (G, a number that you memorize), the mass of two objects (M1 and M2) and the distance between their centers (r^2) and doing the math. The math is just basic operations-- not too hard, right? That's all that stuff is.

I was never taught any of this in school. We never even learned anything, we left off at dopler's effect.
And I get what you're saying, but I think there's a lot more things out there to learn, to make. Art can be found in prety interesting places, not just Physics, and people shouldn't really know everything if they can know other things

I agree, juat not with that I don't kniw it because I was let down or scared of it. I took the health tract and metal shops. I may not know this, but I can take a few blank pieces of metal and make damn near anything. I've made two if my own guns now, some people just learn other a things well.

Of course, everybody has their own strengths. I'm actually not a physics student anymore, I'm a music major at university. I just don't think people should be so intimidated by science and math. It leads to social divides, inefficiency, and loss of progress. But hell, I'd love to have your talent.

Mister, I just wanted to say you're completely right. I was failing math classes in elementary and middleschool. Because I was literally scaring myself into being unable to understand new material. In 8th grade, when a teacher taught me to not fear the problems anymore?.. everything started to click. Now I'm in highschool and I'm in AP everything, and my math teachers are throwing books at me left and right because I'm just burning through everything they hand me. If you go in with a can-do attitude, you have a much higher rate of success if you have someone explain to you the basics of what's needed. When you're going "Oh I don't know this.. I can't do this.. I'll look stupid.. It's impossible!" You really set yourself up for failure.

[smallTL;DR I'm a math and science nut and if you just keep a positive attitude you can get somewhere.[small]

The farthest they taught us math in highschool was logarithms and that was the final week. Never had a math class after that again.
