Lewis (1875–1946) Honor Code: I pledge on my honor that I have neither given nor received improper aid on this examination. __________________________________________ (Signature) Directions: 1. No books or notes may be used during this test. There should be no data stored on your calcula ­ tor for use on the exam. This includes, but is not limited to, periodic tables and chemical equa ­ tions and formulas. 2. There are a total of 8 sections (some with several parts) for a sum of 100 points. 3 Be certain that, wherever applicable, you show your work. Problems in sections 7 ­8 that are an ­ swered without showing work will not receive credit. 4. Please note: there are no intentionally misleading questions on this test. Each problem should be taken at its face value. You must, however, be certain to read each problem carefully! 5. If you have any questions please ask your professor. “The strength of science lies in its naïveté… if we could foresee all the obstacles that lie in our path we would not attack even the first, but would settle down to self centered contemplation.” —Gilbert N. Lewis, in The Anatomy of Science (1926) DO NOT REMOVE THIS PAGE FROM YOUR EXAM!!!!! Please check the box by the section in which you are officially enrolled: Prof. List (MWF, 8:10 ­9:00) Prof. Hanusa (MWF, 9:10 ­10:00) Prof. Lukehart (TTh, 8:10 ­9:25) Prof. Phillips (MWF, 11:10 ­12:00) Exam Score________ 2 SECTION 1 (10 PTS.
