e=mc^2 is only for objects at rest. It does not explain time dilation or behaviour of particles at large speeds.

The law of gravitation is only an approximation, should have been replaced by Einstein's general relativistic expressions instead, or these expressions should have been included in the list too.

The fundamental theorem of calculus involves tying the integral to the values of the anti derivative at the boundary, not the limit formula of a derivative. And the derivative theorem is used in EVERYTHING, and should be the top formula undoubtedly. Even F = ma can be derived from that.

Maxwell's equations are incorrect, namely the curl of the auxiliary magnetic field does not include the current density J term.

Schrödinger's equation, as written, is meaningless as the derivative with respect to time isn't being applied to anything, and this is not operator notation as the wave function is included in the other two terms. Also, the potential given is '1', when the general equation should have a V(x) there instead.

Also, as someone else pointed out, where is F=ma??? It is possibly the most fundamental equation in all of physics period. Even with time dilation and funky affects due to the curvature of space-time in the vicinity of mass, F=ma (or rather the vector form) holds true in the infinitesimal region at the very least.

I am a fourth year physics major, so that is my credibility, I've spent years studying most of these equations.

E=mc^2 is incorrect, the completed and corrected version is: e^2=(mc^2)^2+(pc)^2

That was not the fundamental theorem of calculus.

what about x=b/2•a?

Bad idea to use the word"function" to denote the purpose of the equation, seeing as it can easily be confused with an actual mathematical function

You forgot this one

1+1

ok so it's topology not topography and as noted below, under the FTC you just show the definition of a derivative.

What type of math are these? I would like to learn this after all of da basicz and shit coming b4 it.

I think the most important one was the general equation of derivative because most of these equations are derived out of it.

I was lost at number 10

What about the QUADRATIC EQUATION!

Actually, I don't even understand this, I am only 13.

The heliocentric model.

The terms are undefined, making the equations meaningless, undefined symbols…?

HOW ABOUT THE LEAST ACTION PRINCIPLE?!

#8: the limits should be -inf to +ing

#3: THAT'S NOT AN EQUATION, IT HAS THE MORE THAN OR EQUAL SIGN!!!

#2 Take away that minus sign between the derivative and the psi!

How about algebra ? :o

the greatest mathematical equation is 1+1=2 'cause it is the only math equation every human on earth seems to understand!!!
