the exam FORM number on the scantron sheet 4. There are 20 multiple choice problems worth 5 points each for a total of 100
points. Choose the one best answer and transfer it to the scantron sheet. You
must mark the correct answer on the scantron sheet to get credit for the
problem. There is no penalty for guessing, so be sure to enter an answer for
every question even if it is just a best guess. 5. At the end of the exam hand in both your scantron and exam booklet in
separate piles set up by the proctors. 6. This is a closed book, 90 minute exam. Turn off and put away all electronic
devices. You may use a calculator and one 3”x5” note card or equivalent. k = “471280 =9x109 Nmz/CZ so: 8.85x10‘12 CZ/Nm2

copper spheres used in the lecture demonstrations. Consider the following procedural
steps: (1) attach a ground wire to the sphere
(2) remove the ground Wire from the sphere
