PHYSICS SEMESTER II FINAL EXAM: The Physics Semester II Final Exam will be held in Taper Gym at 9:00 A.M. on Friday, 5/30, which is the second day of exams. The exam will count 130 points, which is equivalent to about 2.5 normal tests and will make up just under 10% of your overall grade in the course. As with the first semester exam, calculators will be permitted and you will also be allowed to bring one double-sided 8½ by 11 sheet of notes to the exam. You will be provided with equation sheets during class containing all of the equations and constants which you might expect you to use on the exam. You are welcome to use this as part of your sheet of notes. On your note sheet, you may write absolutely anything that you think might be useful to you during the exam. The exam will be structured in a way similar to the unit tests--there will be three sections: multiple choice, long problems, and essays. The multiple choice section will consist of 25 questions, each of which will be worth 2 points. The long problems section will consist of 5 problems worth 12 points each. The long problems will be broken into parts a, b, c, etc. as usual. You will be asked to write 2 essays, which will also be worth 10 points each. You will be given a choice of essay questions, probably 2 out of 4. The difficulty of the exam should be approximately the same as the difficulty of unit tests, which is to say that you will need to understand the fundamental concepts and be familiar with the major calculations in order to do well. The second semester final exam will be heavily, heavily weighted toward second semester material. It is possible that there may be a few questions which ask you to relate second semester subject matter to first semester concepts such as force, acceleration, and energy. The review questions/problems/essays are a lot greater in length and possibly a bit greater in difficulty than the actual exam. If you are able to understand and complete all of the review questions, you are in great shape for the final exam. Go in peace now. May you live long and prosper.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
