Physics 10 Midterm exam 1 – Essay Questions October 7, 2004 Last name____________________ First name____________________SID__________________ Essay questions (20 pts): pick one and only one to answer, and circle the one you picked. Cover the important points in a clear and concise manner – as if you have only a few minutes to tell the President, your roommate, or your parent, what that person needs to know. Clear, effective writing is important. 1. This week the price of crude oil, from which gasoline is made, reached a new high of $51 per barrel. Many people think that automobiles will not be able to depend on gasoline in the future, or will at least need gasoline combined with some other system. Discuss the automobile of the future. Will solar energy be used? Batteries? How? Briefly mention how your answer might have been different if I had asked you to talk about airplanes or buses. OR 2. Nuclear reactors are opposed by many people because of the dangers. What are the dangers from nuclear reactors? Describe some historical events and their consequences. Be clear about what is known and what is unknown. Briefly state what the realistic alternatives to nuclear are, and whether they have safety issues too. (I am not interested in your opinion; just the technical information that is relevant to forming an opinion.)

    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.
