PLEASE NOTE: In order to pass Physics 116
you MUST pass at least one hourly exam or the final exam. If you
fail your first hourly exam, your projected grade will be an F until you
pass an exam.
Check out your grades on the online Gradebook. Please notify your TA if there are any errors.
- Lecture is CANCELLED.
- The recitation sections that meet today, R1 and R2, are CANCELLED. Your TA will contact you about completing the work outside of class
- I will post the lecture notes online, and summarize them on Tuesday.
- The HW due date is now extended to Tuesday March 10.
I strongly encourage you to make every effort to get this HW done ASAP, leaving only the things you can't answer for next week, as you will have a reading quiz on Tuesday and another HW due the following Friday. Putting off this week's HW now will only make next week horrible and will reduce your likelihood of learning well.
Come in and get help at any of the instructors' office hours; feel free to visit any instructor that is available when you are.
FREE GROUP TUTORING: in addition to study groups, there is free drop-in group tutoring available in ARC 332 every Tuesday and Thursday evening from 7 PM - 9 PM. The tutoring is both high quality and FREE, and you can get help in Calc II from the same tutor. Just look for Bruce.
Here you'll find old exams
and solutions to help you prepare for exams.
Here is a printable version of the
formula sheet for the final.
Here are the Lecture notes:
Week 1 Mathematization in physics
Week 2 Rotational Kinematics
Week 3 Rotational Dynamics
Week 4 Statics
Week 6 Fluids
Week 7 Kinetic Theory and "Heats"
This is the Free Physics Ebook that is one of the required textbooks for this course. You can download it in a variety of formats, and take advantage of the free supporting materials and tools at the publisher's download site. The OpenStax project provides high quality college-level textbooks available for downloading or as an interactive ebook in a variety of subjects.

Asking someone for an answer and using it for your homework is considered cheating.Taking less than a minute to correctly answer WebAssign questions is an indicator of cheating. You will not be persecuted for this, but you will be hurting yourself and wasting your time. Research shows that students who frequently cheat on homework score, on average, two letter grades lower on exams than students who do their homework without cheating. For more, see the article by Professor Pritchard at MIT.
The Engineering Toolbox is useful for finding material properties like densities, specific heats, etc. that you often need for homework, in addition to just about any physics relevant to engineering applications.
Information for students with disabilities
Register your iClicker unit for lecture
if you have not already registered. If you have the same transmitter
that you used last semester in 115, you do not need to reregister.
