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!

    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.
