Spring 2011 PHYS 172: Modern Mechanics Lecture 13 – Energy in Macroscopic System Read 7.1– 7.8 Homeworks: It is expected that a student works on a a homework # x shortly after lecture # x , since HWx is on material of LECx. While the due dates for HWs are typically set to about a week after the respective lectures, this extra time should be considered as a grace period for emergencies and not as a suggestion to work on the assignment on that last day.
