Unformatted text preview: OLD DOMINION UNIVERSITY PHYSICS 227N/232N, University Physics Spring 2013 Third Examination 8:30 am — 10:20 am Thursday 07 March 2013 Room 142, OCNPS PROFESSOR: Dr. D. C. Cook Answer all 4 questions: Each question is worth different marks. Full marks will only be given if complete working is shown. All questions should be answered on the examination paper. SI units need to be provided for all answers. If more space is required, attach sheets to paper. Text book may not be used. This examination will be 15% of the total course assessment.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
