Physics 201 Final Exam Rooms and Procedures (Fall 1996)

The final exam for Physics 201 will be at 10:05 AM, Saturday, December 21 in the following rooms:

The procedures will be the same as for the previous exams, except that the final exam will last exactly two hours.

In the event of an illness or emergency that prevents you from taking the final as scheduled, you should contact Prof. Sprott or Prof. Smith as soon as possible to avoid receiving an F in the course.

You may bring to the exam a pencil, eraser, calculator, and one 8.5" x 11" sheet of notes on which you may write anything you wish.

You are to sit in parallel lines separated in each row by one empty seat.

You are expected to remain silent from the beginning of the exam until you exit the room.

Be sure your name and section number are at the top of each sheet of the exam, and be sure your exam has the correct number of pages.

Show all your work in the space immediately below each problem, and place your answer in the box provided on the exam sheet. Be sure to include units wherever necessary and the direction of vectors.

You are to turn your exam in to your TA when you are finished.

You are not allowed to leave during the last 5 minutes of the exam.

You will be instructed to stop work promptly at 12:05 PM, and if you continue writing after being instructed to stop, you will receive a grade of zero on the exam.

Partial credit will be awarded wherever possible, but you will receive at most half credit if you do not show your work and such work is required to determine the answer.

Cheating is an extremely serious matter and will be cause for removal from the course.
