Unformatted text preview: PHYS 2212 Test 1 Sept 15th 2010 Name (print) ________________ déflfi __________________________________________________________________ __ Instructions 0 Read all problems carefully before attempting to solve them. 0 Your work must be legible, and the organization must be clear. 0 You must Show all work, including correct vector notation. 0 Correct answers without adequate explanation will be counted wrong. 0 Incorrect work or explanations mixed in with correct work will be counted wrong. Cross out anything you don’t want us to read! 0 Make explanations correct but brief. You do not need to write a lot of prose. 0 Include diagrams! 0 Show what goes into a calculation, not just the final number, e.g.: $75 = W = 5x104 0 Give standard SI units with your results. Unless specifically asked to derive a result, you may start from the formulas given on the formula sheet, including equations corresponding to the fundamental concepts. If a formula you need is not given, you must derive it. If you cannot do some portion of a problem, invent a symbol for the quantity you can’t calculate (explain that you are doing this), and use it to do the rest of the problem.
