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.


  • The final exam and solutions are posted in old exams and solutions. Have a great summer!

  • Here are the diagrams shown in lecture that describe standing waves for the two types of boundary conditions. The first shows the even boundary conditions. (either both ends free or both ends fixed), and the second diagram shows the odd boundary conditions. (one end open/one end closed).

  • Here is the handout on Simple Harmonic Motion. and wave questions.
  • Here is a handout that summarizes the thermodynamic processes.

  • Here is a compact collection of useful formulae about rotations Translations/Rotations Analogies and Moment of Inertia

  • 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.
  • 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

  • Come in and get help at any of the instructors' office hours; feel free to visit any instructor that is available when you are.

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

  • 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.
