otherwise there should be no books, electronic devices, or other materials in your purview.
When you are ﬁnished, check that your name appears prominently and legibly on the front
page. The exam is worth 100 points total. IMPORTANT POINTS FOR GRADING: SHOW ALL WORK. ANSWERS GIVEN WITHOUT CLEAR
SUPPORTING EVIDENCE OF INDEPENDENT WORK WILL BE
IGNORED. CIRCLE ANSWERS. THOSE NOT CLEARLY MARKED AS YOUR
FINAL ANSWER WILL BE IGNORED. BE NEAT. ILLEGIBLE OR SLOPPY WORK WILL BE IGNORED. I am greatly astonished when I consider the weakness of my mind

is hot and emits electrons into the region between two
parallel plates, where they travel towards the anode.
In operation at a ﬁxed anode voltage V0, the system

moves a ﬂuxcutting emf is generated that opposes this motion. bar of mass m. a) From your knowledge of Netwon’s laws (F 2 m5 ), magnetic forces, and Faraday’s law,
