Spring 2011 PHYS 172: Modern Mechanics Lecture 24 – Entropy Read 12.3 – 12.5 Exam 3 results: Multiple choice: 42.5/70 = 60.7% Handwritten: grading in progress EXAM PROBLEM OVERVIEW : NEXT LECTURE What is my grade? (see announcement on the course web page) 1. Calculate (estimate) your total score Total score = FEX*0.2 + (Ex1+Ex2+Ex3)*0.1 + (Lab + HW + Rec)*0.15 + Lec*0.05 2. Compare with the grade cutoff table in syllabus. Your score will be not lower than that. Cutoffs may be lowered by 1. .2% depending on exam 3 and final exam difficulty levels. Averages: EX1 = 63.5% Lab = 90 % Lec = 84 % EX2 = 58.4% HW = 88 % EX3 = 59 % Rec = 90 % ( blue = expected averages) 2 Equilibrium Only 500 oscillators (500/3 molecules) and 100 quanta: Ω ~10 114 Take logarithm!
