University of California, Los Angeles Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department MAE 101: Statics and Strength of Materials Winter 2011 Instructor: W. S. Klug MIDTERM EXAM Monday, February 7, 2011, 2:00pm–3:50pm. Instructions: Please complete the exam using the pages provided. Attach additional sheets as needed. The exam is closed-book, closed-notes. You may use a calculator. Write clearly — we must be able to read and understand your work to assign credit. Incorrect or absent free-body diagrams will result in loss in credit. Correct answers without supporting analysis/explanation will not guarantee credit. If you think that a problem statement is unclear, ambiguous, incomplete, or incorrect, explain why you think it is so, and state any assumptions you feel are necessary in order to proceed. Name:
