a) Write your name, Discussion Section #, GSI name and SID# on the top of all materials you
intend to hand in and want to be graded.
b) Remember to circle all of your final answers.
c) Express all numerical results to 3 significant figures. Cross out any work you decide is
incorrect, with an explanation in the margin.
Read through the entire exam to start. Work to maximize your credit — try to obtain at least
partial credit on every part of every problem. Do your work clearly so we can easily follow. Show
all
work, using the front and back sides
of this exam paper. If you do not show relevant work for
any part of a problem, you will not be awarded any credit, even if the answer is correct. If you
recognize that an answer does not make physical sense and you do not have time to find your error,
write that you know that the answer cannot be correct and explain how you know this to be true.
(We will award some credit for recognizing there is an error.) Do not get bogged down in algebra
— if you have enough equations to solve for your unknowns, box the equations, state how you
would finish, and move on (you can go back and complete the algebra later if you have time). And
if you have questions about the interpretation of a problem,
please ask!
