Announcements Homework #9 is due at 11:59 PM on Sunday, June 7.  This is the week for Physics 117 Lab Makeups.  If you missed any labs, you should  use it. Exam 3 should be returned tomorrow. Grades for Parts 1 & 2 will be posted on  WebAssign as they become available.  On Monday, March 14 we will have our Final Exam, which will cover Chapters 1- 13 of Walker and my Lectures 1-32.  It will be similar in form to the previous  exams.  We will not have a review before the Final.  If you have successfully  completed Exams 1, 2, and 3, the Final is optional.  After the results for Exam 3  are available, I will compute a “Preliminary Grade” and post it on WebAssign.   You need to take the Final  only  if you want to try to improve this preliminary  grade.

Isaac Newton (1642 - 1727)      Isaac Newton was born in 1642, the year of Galileo’s death.  He entered Trinity College of Cambridge University at the age of 19 and graduated in 1665, at the age of 23.  Because the Black Death was ravaging Europe at the time, he then returned to his family’s farm estate for two years to escape the pestilence.      It was during this period that he did his greatest work.  He performed experiments in optics and laid the foundations of his theories of mechanics and gravitation.  Because he needed it for his studies, he invented the  calculus  as a new branch of mathematics.
