Examination No. 1 Please review the following statement: I certify that l have not given unauthorized aid nor have i received aid in the completion of this exam. Signature: INSTRUCTIONS Begin each problem in the space provided on the examination sheets. If additional space is required,
use the white lined paper provided to you. Work on one side of each sheet only, with only one problem on a sheet.
Each problem is worth 20 points. Please remember that for you to obtain maximum credit for a problem, it must be clearly presented,
is.
o The coordinate system must be clearly identified. 0 Where appropriate, free body diagrams must be drawn. These should be drawn separately
from the given figures. 9 Units must be clearly stated as part of the answer.
a You must carefully delineate vector and scalar quantities. lf the solution does not follow a logical thought process, it will be assumed in error. When handing in the test, please make sure that all sheets are in the correct sequential order
and make sure that your name is at the top of every page that you wish to have graded. lnstructor’s Name and Section: Section 1: J. Silvers 1:30 — 2:20 pm Section 2: J. Jones 9:30 — 10:20 am Problem 1
