University of California at Berkeley
Department of Physics
Physics 8A, Spring 2006
Final Exam
May 16, 2006 5:00 PM
You will be given 170 minutes to work this exam.
No books, but you may use a
handwritten note sheet no larger than an 8 1/2 by 11 sheet of paper.
No electronics of any
kind (calculator, cell phone, iPod, etc)
Your description of the physics involved in a problem is worth significantly more than any
numerical answer.
Show all work, and take particular care to explain what you are doing.
Write your answers directly on the exam, and if you have to use the back of a sheet make
sure to put a note on the front.
Do not use a blue book or scratch paper.
Each part is worth the number of points indicated. These should sum to 200 points. Setup
and explanation are worth almost all of the points. Clearly state what you are doing and
why. In particular, make sure that you explain what principles and conservation rules you
are applying, and how they relate.
There are two pages of info at the back.
You can tear them off and keep them separate if
you’d like.
