It is very crucial to understand some important things in physics. For instance, you should understand that when a body starts from rest, the initial velocity is zero (u = 0) and when it comes to rest, the final velocity is zero (v = 0).
There are few places where JAMB asks the same questions every year. Knowing those topics would make it easier for you to focus on what you might see in your Jamb examinations.ChatGPT – Everything you need to know about the new AI Chatbot
