Unformatted text preview: ,\ .A A ’ Name & Section- Saunders Physics 133 -- Electromagnetism --Exam 1 ° You must do and show/explain your own work. Partial credit will be awarded. However, a correct answer without explanatory material will not receive full credit. 0 Clearly indicate your final result with a box or circle. 0 If you need more space go onto the back and indicate "OVER". Possibly helpful information: NOTE: These formulae just give the magnitudes. You need to determine the direction.
