how you derived them (show work) to obtain full credit
. Points may be deducted if you do
not justify your final answer. Please indicate clearly whenever you continue your work on the
back of the page.
▪
When an answer box is provided, put your final answer in the box.
▪
When submitting a numerical answer that is a decimal, use
four decimal places of accuracy
after the decimal point.
▪
When submitting a numerical answer that is a fraction, reduce it to lowest terms.
▪
Be sure to include the units in your answer.
▪
If
you can not do part a) of some problem, but you need the answer for part b), then you can
get partial credit for showing you know what to do.
You could write, “let

be the answer to
a),” and solve b) in terms of
p
.
