Test I in Physics 222 Date of test: 11 February 2010 Material: Electrostatics; materials in Ch. 23, 24, 25, and 26, and our class coverage on these topics. Test is closed book and closed notes. Per the syllabus, you may use a simple scientific calculator with NO MEMORY or GRAPHING capabilities. Acceptable calculators include TI-30 TI-36 Sharp EL-531 Sharp EL-506 These four are available from the Bookstore or elsewhere for $11 - $25. Equivalent calculators are acceptable. For this and all tests: Bring your student ID, calculator, some #2 pencils, and a very good clean eraser. I?ll supply Scantron forms. Stow your MP-3 players, cell phones, PDAs, laptops, caps, etc at home or in your backpack. A seating chart and your test version (A, B, ?) for the test will be posted at the class before the test. On test day, pick up a copy of your test version and a Scantron form at the back of the classroom. Do your work on the printed test paper, then transfer your answers to the Scantron form. Avoid erasures on the Scantron; if necessary to change something, erase completely. Hand in both the test paper and Scantron form. There will be ~15-20 questions on the test: some conceptual, some problems, and some ?proportionality? questions. In general, I try to design questions to test broad, important concepts and physical relationships ? the general purpose ?tools? of physics. I discourage your (trying to) memorize every equation in every chapter; it is much better to do some thoughtful analysis and solution that to have a lot of equations floating around with little idea where to use them. If you understand and have a really good grasp of key, central, fundamental ideas, it is far easier to analyze, dissect and solve physics problems (and do well in the course). Please practice the analysis process ? deciding what physics gives the tool(s) needed to find what is needed. This has been a missing or neglected link for too many folks in the 221 class. Best wishes for your test preparation. James R Thompson Test I in Physics 222
