Quiz 4 2/28/2014

Directions: Use pencil only. On your Scantron, you should have already blackened in your Student ID,
using 1 for A, 7 for U, making a 9-digit number (for shame if you havent). Fill in A in the Test
Form box. Choose the one best answer. Questions may include more or less information than is needed, so
sometimes the answer is not enough information. Pay close attention to the units of given numbers.
You may find some of the following formulas and information useful:
G 6.67 1011 N-m 2 kg 2

g 9.8 m/s 2

electron mass 9.11 1031 kg
