No other material such as textbooks, class notes, or homework is permitted. The exam has six problems with multiple parts. The credit for each part is indicated. Before you start, make sure all pages of your examination are legible. If you have to leave the room for any reason during the exam, please do so quietly without asking. If you have a question during the exam, raise your hand and, if you are in the center of a row, come to the side isle. Full credit will be given for answers that are worked out correctly, even if the numerically correct answer is not obtained. You may leave your answer in terms of a correct symbolic equation if you like. To obtain credit, be sure to show as much work as possible! There are no long or tricky answers. If you find yourself doing anything long or tricky, stop and reevaluate your approach. Useful formulas and tables are included at the end of the exam.
