Review session for the second hour exam will be in room 222 (Loomis) on Friday July 10, from 10:00am – 12:00pm.

To help you study, here are some representative problems:

SUMMER 2008 HE1:  10-23

SUMMER 2008 HE2:  3-9

SUMMER 2010 HE2:  1-8, 23

SUMMER 2007 HE2:  14 (You will be responsible for the torque on a loop, as in this problem; but you are not yet responsible for loops where a current is induced by rotation.)

At the session, I will start by answering any quick questions from people who can't stay the whole time.  Then I will work through the 2008 and 2007 exam questions.  If there is time left over, I'll stay in case anyone has looked at the 2010 problems and needs help.

As mentioned in lecture, you are responsible for problems with resistors and capacitors, and problems in which there are magnetic fields and forces but not magnetic induction (eg., Lenz, emf, transformers).  If you think the listing above contains irrelevant problems, please let me know, and I will adjust if necessary.





Here are some problems for you to try as you study for the first hour exam.

SUMMER 2010:  1-7, 12, 13, 15

SUMMER 2008:  1-9, 13

I will discuss these problems during our Friday (6/26) review session (see below).  As I picked these problems, I tried to avoid questions which, under our new curriculum, will not appear on the first hour exam.  If you think I've made a mistake, I encourage you to contact me.  As I mentioned in lecture, there will be two questions regarding material from lectures 6 and 7.

Anyone with questions about other relevant material is welcome at the review session.  I will answer those questions first.




Review session for first hour exam will be in room 222 (Loomis) on Friday June 26, from 10:00am – 12:00pm.
