Unformatted text preview: Physics 272— Practice Exam ll
Spring 2010
Prof. Mohan Kalelkar Your name sticker with exam code . The exam will last from 3:25pm to 4:30pm. Use a # 2 pencil to make
entries on the answer sheet. Enter the following id information now,
before the exam starts. . In the section labelled NAME, enter your last name, then ﬁll in the'
empty circle for a blank, then enter your ﬁrst name, another blank,
and ﬁnally your middle initial. . Under STUDENT # enter your 9~digit Student ID Number. Under
COURSE enter 272. Under CODE enter the exam code given above. . During the exam, you may use pencils, a calculator, and ONE 8%” X 11” sheet of paper with formulas and notes. ' . There are 16 multiple~choice questions on the exam. For each ques—
tion, mark only one answer on the answer sheet. There is no subtrac
tion of points for an incorrect answer, so even if you cannot work out
the answer to a question, you should make an educated guess. At the
end of the exam, hand in only the answer sheet. Retain this question
paper for future reference and study. . Useful numerical constants are given on the next page. Before starting
the exam, make sure that your copy contains the page of constants
and all 16 questions. Bring your exam to the proctor if this is not the
case. Acceleration due to gravity g = 9.8 772/32
