Homework Format Each homework problem should be neatly written and follow the following structure: Given : State the problem and critical parameters. You do not need to rewrite the entire problem statement. When appropriate, feel free to use a diagram to state what is given. Find : State concisely what in your words what is to be determined Assumptions : State key assumptions necessary to solve the problem; feel free to update the list of assumptions while the problem is being solved if you realize that you need to make more. Schematic : Draw a sketch of the physical system to be solved and any control volume pertinent to solving the problem. Solution : Identify key principles needed to solve the problem; if you get data from tables or other data bases, state where and which table the data came from; work with the equations in symbolic form (when practical) as long as possible before substituting numerical values;

Unformatted text preview: explicitly write any equation before substituting numerical values; box your answer with the proper units. Be careful with unit conversions, especially with the English unit system. To avoid unit conversion errors do not perform unit conversions as scratch work on the side, instead attach units and any necessary unit conversions to every number while performing calculations. Comments : May contain a summary of conclusions, notable trends, and critique of the assumptions. This section is optional, but you may obtain extra credit if you state more than the obvious and make insightful comments. In a quiz or exam situation, if you realize that your answer is incorrect and nonsensical say so. If you locate the error(s) and say that you think the answer is incorrect you will not get as many points taken off. Staple each page together and write your name on each page....

    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.
