PHYS 102 :: Physics Illinois :: University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
Wednesday, Dec. 11 (Lect. 29), Prof. Chemla will give an in-class review session. Here is a pdf of the review. A powerpoint version of the slides can be found on the course schedule page.
There will be Extra office hours Thursday, Dec. 12 (reading day) and Sunday, Dec. 15. Please check the office hour page for updates.
The final exam is cumulative and will cover the entire semester's material evenly. Final exams are scheduled for Tuesday, Dec. 17, 7-10pm (A2) and Friday, Dec. 20, 8-11am (A1).
Extra practice problems: There is an optional problem set #14 on byteshelf to help you study for late semester material (Nuclear physics & Relativity). In addition, extra multiple-choice practice problems covering the entire semester are available here.
UPDATED FORMULA SHEET: The equation "f = + R/2" for curved mirrors was added to the course formula sheet. As mentioned previously, the following errors were also corrected: On the fourth line of equations, "+Wyou" should be corrected to "-Wyou". On the fifth line of equations, "V=E/d" should be "V=Ed". A corrected, up-to-date formula sheet can be found here.
Please see the course description for an explanation of how this course works. It may seem complicated at first, but all the pieces do work together to enhance understanding. The course description also gives important details on our policies for missed exams, labs & quizzes. Also, please consult the syllabus to help you keep track of what is due when.
We will be using i>clickers in every lecture. You can use either the older v1 or the newer v2 i>clickers. If you have not already done so, please register your clicker by visiting https://my.physics.illinois.edu/iclicker/. Having another student answer questions using your clicker is considered cheating.
The only course components eligible to be issued a grade of EX are discussions, labs and exams (except for the final). Please submit your excused absence no later than 10 business days from your absence via the Excused Absences application. For more information, please read the course description page.
