    HW03:08 (4.P.042) part a) and b): Any file you download gives you credit. The figures are not graded.

    HW04:12 (6.P.054): Use momentum and kinetic energy conservation for an elastic collision. As a shortcut the relation v(2,f)-v(1,f) = v(1,i)-v(2,i) could be used.

    HW05:05 (7.P.033): Typo: Mass of spaceship is 30,000 kg, not 3 x 10E43 kg.

    HW07:07 (11.P.004): Typo: Aluminum coefficient of linear expansion is 24 x 10^{-6} 1/C.

    REMARKS ABOUT EXAM AND EXAM REVIEW

    The week before the exam the workshop will consist of HW05-problems, a quiz and an exam-review.

    Be prepared to ask some questions about old or new problems that have been bothering you.
    If you do not have questions there is nothing to review.

    CALCULATOR.
    If you have a graphing calculator, you may bring that to the exams. However, the best type to have for the exams would be a non-graphing scientific calculator. That will have all of the functionality that you will need.







    _____________________________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________

    Make your own sheet with formulae and notes to bring to the exam.
