Print your name and section clearly on all five pages. (If you do not know your section number, write your TA’s name.) Show all work in the space immediately below each problem. Your final answer must be placed in the box provided. Problems will be graded on reasoning and intermediate steps as well as on the final answer. Be sure to include units wherever necessary, and the direction of vectors. Each problem is worth 25 points. In doing the problems, try to be neat. Check your answers to see that they have the correct dimensions (units) and are the right order of magnitude. You are allowed one 8½ x 11" sheet of notes and no other references. The exam lasts exactly 50 minutes.
