Exam IV
Final exam
Chpts. 2 - 7
Chpts. 8 - 11
Chpts. 12 - 16

Tues. Lab Nov. 17
Thurs 7:00 PM. Dec. 10
10:30 – 12:00 PM ,Thursday Dec 18
*****THERE WILL BE NO MAKE-UP EXAMINATIONS GIVEN!!!*****
If you miss an exam and have an official university excuse,
the final examination will count an additional 100 points.
GRADING
The semester grade will be based on 1000 total points for the semester divided as follows:
4 Hour exams @ 100 pts.... ......400 points
1 final exam @ 200 pts.............200
Problem sets..............................250
Laboratory.................................150
total...........1000 points
Grades
1000-900 = A,
899-800 = B,
799-700 = C,
699-600 = D,
599-0 = F
OUTLINE PROBLEMS
On one specified problem (underlined on assignment sheet) in each of the problem sets , you will be required to turn in
the problem worked in outline form. This is intended to aid you in developing organized procedures for attacking
physics problems. Each of these problems must be done in the detailed form listed below, with each procedure
numbered on your paper and the details supplied. Each of these selected problems must be done in outline form and
MUST BE WORKED ONE PROBLEM TO A SHEET OF PAPER! (1 PROBLEM → 1 SHEETS MINIMUM).
These problems must be submitted in written form on the due date in addition to the solution submitted to WebAssign.
Problem Outline
1.
State the Objectives
Give a qualitative description of the problem. Visualize with a sketch/drawing. Write down what you want to find out
and any physics ideas you might use in the problem. Once this is done, you should never have to refer to the problem
statement again.
2.
Describe the Physics
Simplify the problem with a diagram using simple physical objects and essential physical quantities. Using step 1 as a
basis, write down the physical equations involving the physical quantities specified. All relevant information should be
contained in this step. You should not need to refer to step 1 again.
3.
Plan the Attack
In this step you translate the physics description usually into a set of equations which represent the problem
mathematically. Compare the number of unknowns and the number of equations. If equal, things are ok!, if not, you
should show where other relations will enter or free choices that you can make to reduce the number of unknowns. This
step may consist of sub problems that must be solved for desired results before the final solution can be obtained.
4.
Execute the plan
Clearly show the logic and development of your solution, preferably in symbolic form. Also show the derivation of your
final units.
5.
Evaluate the Solution
Check the solution and check to see if units match and that the answer is reasonable (correct order of magnitude and or
comparison with known benchmarks)
FAILURE TO FOLLOW THIS FORM ON THESE PROBLEMS ON YOUR PROBLEM ASSIGNMENT
SHEET WILL RESULT IN THAT PROBLEM BEING COUNTED AS INCORRECT.
A sample problem worked in this format will be posted on the bulletin board beside my office (Rm 115), to illustrate one
way to solve a problem in this format.
PHYSICS 211 : PROBLEM ASSIGNMENTS
Fall 2008: Halliday , Resnick, & Walker 8th Ed.
Listed below are the assigned problems and questions for the fall semester. These should be viewed as an ABSOLUTE
MINIMUM number of problems to be worked. Usually you will need to work more! Problems are due at the start of
class and must be submitted to WebAssign by the authorized date. WebAssign will accept solutions ONLY by the
assigned date. NO late problems will be accepted. Each problem is worth no less than 2 points except for outline
problems which are worth double credit.
Homework problems are from the textbook, and must be solved and graded on the WebAssign website
(http://webassign.net/login.html). These usually require numerical answers, with different constants for each student.
Answers must usually be given to 3 significant figures. You will need a calculator to work them and are allowed 4
attempts per problem. . Homework assignments will be posted on WebAssign and the class schedule sheet.
WebAssign directions: To use WebAssign, go http://webassign.net/login.html and enter the
following information:
•
Username: Your username is your 7-digit pipeline id (no spaces or dashes). (NOTE: This is the first
part of your Harding login id, i.e [email protected] would mean the webassign username is
jmackey
•
Institution code: harding (Note: you must use lowercase)
•
Password: Your password has been set to your pipeline id. You should change it for security, but
don't forget the new password that you choose! If you have any password problems, e-mail me at the
email address above.
Then click on the Log In button.
Each written problem, or part of a problem, required to be submitted on paper, should contain the following on the
outside of the folded paper: (1/2 off if not included!)

(set no.)

Please work neatly!!...sloppy papers often seem to encourage sloppy work.
Outline problems add +5 points to Webassign grade for that chapter. Complete paper solutions add +2, while each
partial paper submission is worth +1. These are in addition to the Webassign grade.
Note: The instructor may find it necessary to adjust class schedules, assignments, exam times, and grading policies in
order to better achieve class goals.
