The first in-class test was on Wednesday September 20 and covered Sections 1.1-1.5 (not torque) and 3.1-3.2 (not Kepler's Laws); in other words, the material covered by the first two problem sets.
The second test was on Monday October 23 and covered Chapters 2 and 4; in other words, the material covered by HW 3 through HW 5.
The third test was on Friday November 17 and covered Section 1.7 (except standard bases for cylindrical and spherical coordinates), Section 3.3, Section 3.4 (except "Other coordinate formulations"), and Chapter 5 (except moments of inertia from Section 5.6); in other words, the material covered by HW 6 through HW 8.
The fourth test was on Wednesday December 6 and covered Chapter 6 and Sections 7.1 and 7.2; in other words, the material covered by HW 9 and HW 10.
The final examination will be on Thursday December 14 from 7-10 pm in Physics 205. There will be an optional review session for the final on Wednesday December 13 from 4-5 pm in Physics 119.
My office hours for the week of December 11 (finals week) are Tuesday 3-4 pm and Wednesday 3-4 pm, as usual.
