INSTRUCTIONS: Enter your name and code # in the bottom strip of the first page. Return the entire set of exam sheets with your scantron . Use a #2 pencil to fill your scantron. Write your code number and bubble it in under ““EXAM NUMBER””. Bubble in the quiz version (see letter A--H at bottom of page) in your scantron under ““ EXAM VERSION””. Since Scantron accepts only letter A-D, those with exam versions E-H should enter corresponding letter from A-D in their scantron card. Ask the proctor if you need clarification.
MULTIPLE CHOICE. Choose the one alternative that best completes the statement or answers the question. 1) When multiplying several quantities, the number of significant digits in the result must always be A) equal to the number of significant digits in the most accurate of the quantities. B) equal to the number of significant digits in the least accurate of the quantities. C) equal to the average number of significant digits in the most and least accurate of the quantities. D) larger than the number of significant digits in the most accurate of the quantities. E) smaller than the number of significant digits in the least accurate of the quantities. 2) Two vectors are given as follows: B = - 2 i - 5 j + 2 k C = - 4 i - 2 j - 3 k The magnitude of C × B is closest to: A) 21 B) 25 C) 29 D) 17 E) 13 3) Vector A has magnitude A =5.00 and makes an angle θ A=26.0o measured in the sense from +x - axis towards the +y- axis, B has B = 4.00 and θ B = 63.0o and C has magnitude 6.00 and points in the +z direction.
