I am looking for a list of simple physics formulas - like $F=ma$. Is there any website/book that is a list of such equations?

Why do you need this list? If you are a student, I strongly, strongly, strongly recommend against using it heavily, and recommend instead that you learn the underlying concepts. If you do that, remembering the formulae is trivial. If you don't, you are locking yourself into getting a C for the class and, more importantly, not really understanding what you're doing. –  Jerry Schirmer Feb 7 '13 at 16:15
Why doesn't Google or Wiki satisfy you..? It looks like a very hard question to me..! –  Waffle's Crazy Peanut Feb 7 '13 at 16:18
1. Program a computer to generate a totally random equation. 2. This will be a simple physics equation written in an unconventional notation. 3. Done. –  Michael Brown Feb 7 '13 at 16:25
The [reference-request] tag wiki says "Use this tag for questions seeking a single specific paper or a short, non-open-ended list of references ...". This is an open-ended make a list request. In any case, my experience at a physics professor suggest that students who concentrate on "a list of formulas" earn C's if they are doing well. You must get the underling concepts and methods or you are doomed to disappointment. –  dmckee Feb 7 '13 at 16:32
@dmckee I didn't put that tag there. The editor did. Thanks! –  Undo Feb 8 '13 at 21:42
