Midterm I Review

(Phys 2200 – Spring 2017)

For actual midterm, only a two-sided 3×5 formula card and a calculator
with cleared memory is allowed

This Midterm covers chapters 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26(Sec’s 1-3)

Similar to HW problems, examples on the board, and the following review problems may be included in the
midterm. Make sure you work on all these areas.

The actual Midterm is on Thursday February 23, during class hour

There will be 4  1 problems in exam

Please try to arrive at least 5 minutes early
