Sorry this is late. The test is Monday 2008-11-17, keep studying these problems: 10.3, 7, 11, 20, 33, 39, 43; 11.3, 14, 23, 33, 41, 44, 46; 12.5, 15, 26, 30, 36, 44, 48, 55.

Problem 3 on the practice test is the hardest. #5 and #6 assume you know Kepler’s 3rd law, the mass and radius of the earth, G, and the black hole formula. I showed them in the solutions above. Dr. Tulsian should write those on the board during the test, if he picks my problems.

#4 is tricky. Remember the quadratic formula. You can also factor it as (x+1L)(x-3L), and then find that x can equal -1L or 3L. Only the positive answer counts, so the answer is 3L.

Remember that radius is half the diameter.

Good luck.

Download the 2008-10-05 Physics practice test. Test yourself, then read the answers. The test consists of problems 4.6, 4.46, 5.10, 5.66, 6.6, and 6.69 from the University Physics textbook.

Download the 2008-09-24 University Physics review (PDF, 500KB, 4 scanned pages). This is for Dr. Gajendra Tulsian’s class (PHY2048), but you can use it for others. Problems covered: 5.24, 5.51, exam 1.3 (train problem), review of tensors, scalars, vectors.

1. Could you post the homework questions, too? Because I don’t have the book. Thank you.

• Sorry I couldn’t do that; I put up a list of problems from the book and a practice test though.

2. Hey there. Did u post the solutions to the chapters 7,8,9 Practive Exam yet ?? thanx
