Lecture HomeWork 8

Physics 121, Fall 2010

Prof. E. F. Redish

Lecture homework consists of 2 parts. Since a lot of the problems this week require diagrams and tools that are not available in MP, most of the problems will have to be done on paper.

Both parts will be due at the beginning of lecture on Fridays.

No homework will be accepted after the solutions are released on BlackBoard
(at about 2:00 PM on the Friday when it is due).
