Unformatted text preview: PHYSICS 12 FIRST EXAMINATION JANUARY 29. 1992 Dr. Ralhs " 11:00 AM ' page 1 of 7
Km Rec. Instructor Grade ’1. _ Two signiﬁcant ﬁgures sufﬁce. 2. Exam is closed book. Calculators allowed. 3. Write your name legibly and your recitation instructor’s name on each page. 4. This examination has two sections: a) SECTION I IS THE LAB QUESTION.
It consists of one question. This question has about the same effect on your'coursc grade as
a 5point question in Section II. The scores on Section I will not be curved. b) SECI'ION II is the Midterm Examination.
It consists of 9 multiple choice questions and 2 problems (Problems BI and 32).
The scores on Section II will be curved. .5. Check now that you have a complete exam.
5. You have a total of 48 minutes to complete both sections. Values of pliysical constants:
Coulomb constant = 9.0 x 10' Nuisz2 co = 8.35 x 10"“ d/(Nm1)
c = 1.60 x 10"" C Page 2 of 7 4 Name I ' Rec. Instructor
