Astronomy 1 winter 2008 Prof: R Antonucci Office: Broida 2015K Assignment # 1 Due Monday January 14, 2008 Instructions On this and future assignments, please write your name on all pages and staple all pages together. Write very clearly! Please be sure to explain your answer to all word problems briefly but carefully, and to show all your work on the calculations. The grade on each problem will reflect more the verbal explanations and the calculations shown rather than the final answers given in the back. (In fact, the answers to most of the quantitative questions from the book are given in the back and I’ll give you the answers to most of my quantitative questions right on the assignments). You may work with others on the homework problems, but you must write them up yourself, using your own words and calculations.

Also, the solutions will be shown on our class website very soon after the due date: http://www.ucsb.physics.ucsb.edu/~astro1/winter2008 . Partly for this reason, we cannot accept late homework! (Only exception: if you have an emergency and tell me before the due date). Lastly, we will have to pick three problems to grade in detail and each will be worth 10 points. For the other problems we will just check briefly, and assign 5 points if you’ve made a reasonable attempt. SHOW ALL WORK 1. Ch 1, # 3, 5, and 10 2. Ch 1, #11, 12, 13 3. Ch 1, #16,17, 18 4. Ch 1, #20, 21, 23. 5. Ch 1, #27, 29, 36...
