Chemistry 301A-301X Final Examination: January 12, 2005 “Why, for example, should a group of simple, stable compounds of carbon, oxygen, and nitrogen struggle for billions of years to organize themselves into a professor of chemistry? What is the motive?” Robert Pirsig This Final Examination is different in very few respects from the hour exams with which you are all too familiar. However, there is choice. PLEASE do not do all the questions. ANSWER QUESTIONS 1 AND 2 AND ONLY FIVE (5) OF THE REMAINING SEVEN (7) QUESTIONS . Should you ignore this simple instruction, we will grade ALL the questions and take an appropriate fraction of the score. We will not, repeat not , take the 7 best nor will we be responsive to pleas that some feeble answer should be ignored because you did not mean to have it graded. The price of choice is that you must be careful and clear about what you want graded and what you want ignored (It is amazing, but some of you will not do this). You must do Questions 1 and 2, and you must do a total of seven (7) Questions. This exam is designed to take 2 hours but you may have a full period of 3 hours. Please take some time at the end to fill out the evaluation forms, which are to be handed in with the exams themselves. We will allow 30 minutes for the evaluations, so the whole process will be over at 12 noon. The questions are weighted equally. At the start, it is almost certainly worth some time to look over the whole exam, to sort the easy from the more challenging and the familiar from the strange. Do the easy questions first. THINK "SIMPLE." PLEASE: 1. Fill out the evaluation forms. 2. Show on the cover what questions are to be graded. DO THIS! Each year people do not do this. Please do it. 3. Sign the pledge: "I pledge that I have not violated the Honour Code on this examination."
