Spring 2011 PHYS 172: Modern Mechanics Lecture 6: Gravity, Iterative prediction, Electrical force, Uncertainty Read 3.3–3.10 VERY IMPORTANT: Scores for lecture 2-5 quizzes were imported into CHIP . More than 100 students did not enter clicker ID into chip or entered them incorrectly Please check your scores a.s.a.p. If you used iClicker in lectures but your score does not appear in CHIP, chances are that have not registered your iClicker ID with CHIP, or entered wrong ID. Please reenter your ID and notify your lecturer immediately. No complaints will be considered after lecture #8. The failure to do that by today’s date may affect your Roll Call state.

    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.
