WINTER 201 l MIDTERM EXAMINATION Date: February 15, 2011 Time: 8:3010:20 am. I.D. #: X PROFESSOR: DIVISION #1 2
SIGNATURE: IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS  READ CAREFULLY TO AVOID PENALTY Use PENCIL. Mark your ID# and three digit “Section number”. Check that you have not missed, or put double marks in any row in the answer ﬁeld. (Keep sheet face down
when not in use.) Fill in name, etc., at upper right on computer sheet and on this page. IIAND IN SHEET AND BOOKLET SEPARATELY. Booklets will be returned to the
students later. Check that your exam has 13 questions. First 8 are worth 10 marks each and the last 5
are worth 4 marks each. Formula sheet is attached There is no penalty marking for incorrect answers. However, in the event that the
computer sheet cannot be completely read, credit will be given to correct answers only if
work is shown in the space below the questions in this booklet. If you need more space for your calculations, use the blank pages at the end of the
booklet or use the back of the previous page and label it with the question number. Good luck! ! g = 9.8 m/s2, 1,, =10‘ZW/m1. Circle your Section: R. Jayasundera (Mechanical and Geological) R.
