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.

  • REMINDER: The 2nd hourly exam in on Thursday April 2nd from 1:40-3:00 PM in the PLH. Please bring scientific calculator and something to write with.
  • Here is a handout that summarizes the thermodynamic processes, which will be very useful in preparing for the second midterm.

  • Check out your grades on the online Gradebook. Please notify your TA if there are any errors.

  • 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"
    Week 8 1st Law & Thermodynamic Processes
    Week 9 2nd Law & Heat Engines

  • 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.

  • All homework and reading quizzes will be posted on WebAssign .If you took Physics 115 last semester, just click on the "I have a Class Key" icon to register.

    These are the instructions for registering on WebAssign if you have never registered before. The course key for WebAssign is rutgers 7102 9946. BE SURE TO INCLUDE YOUR RU STUDENT ID NUMBER ON THE FORM.
  • 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.
