05/04 The Solutions to Test 4 are now available at the Noble Library Copy Center. 04/29 In studying for Test 4, you do not need to study question 7 on Old Test 5; we did not cover the specific heats of diatomic gases this year. 04/16 The Solutions to Test 3 are now available at the Noble Library Copy Center. 04/09 In preparation for our test on Tuesday, my Monday office hours will be extended. Instead of the usual hours of 3-5 PM, I will be available from 3-8 PM to answer your questions about ROTATION, SPRINGS, and WAVES. 04/09 The program automatically changed us over to Daylight Savings Time, which caused us some problems with HW17 on Thursday night. What I have done is to make HW17 "Past due but accessible". This means that your numbers will not be changed, but your submitted work will be marked "Late", i.e it will appear in red in your gradebook. Don't worry though, you will receive full credit for these points. HW17 will continue to be accessible until Sat. night at 11PM. If you have more questions, please send me an email. 03/13 The Solutions to Test 2 are now available at the Noble Library Copy Center. 03/12 My email is now restored (1 PM Fri). 03/11 Due to a computer failure, my email is suffering a disruption beginning at about 8 PM TH night. I will put a note here as soon as it is restored, hopefully by Fri afternoon. If you have sent email to me during the disruption, you may need to resend it to insure that I receive it. Thanks. GBA 03/04 My office hours on Monday 3/8 will be expanded. Instead of the usual hours of 3-5 PM, I will be available from 3-8 PM to answer your questions about the FORCE, ENERGY, and MOMENTUM perspectives on DYNAMICS. 02/27 Many students seem to be having trouble with the DEF of work because they do not understand what is meant by "the component of vector A in the direction of vector B". If you are one of those students, here is a little exercise which should help you figure it out. 02/13 The Solutions to Test 1 are now available at the Noble Library Copy Center. Please use these to check the grading of your test, and to debug your understanding of the ideas covered by Test 1. You will need these ideas from Chapters 1-4 if you are to grasp the new ideas which are to follow in the coming weeks. 02/08 My office hours on Monday 2/9 will be expanded. Instead of the usual hours of 3-5 PM, I will be available from 3-8 PM to answer your questions about KINEMATICS and NEWTON'S LAWS. 02/05 There was a misprint in the original version of Required Reading #6. The Newton unit was given incorrectly. The Newton (N) is correctly given by 1 N = 1 kg m/s² The error has now been corrected. 02/05 PRS and quiz grades are now posted. Please check to make sure your PRS scores are being recorded. There are 3 students entering PRS answers who have not registered their transmitters. 02/03 The PHY111 email list is now active. If you did not receive an email today, please check the status of your ASU email account. Make sure that your quota has not been exceeded by undeleted mail and that all email is being forwarded to your favorite destination. You can set this up at EMMA. 02/03 My Friday office hour is now set from 1:40-3:30 in PSF-462. Hopefully, this is now set for the semester. Please do come to my office hours. So far this resource has been highly underused. 01/30 The Old Tests, with solutions, are now available in the Noble Library Copy Center. 01/22 Change to Office Hours. Scheduling conflicts in PSF-462 mean that the Wed office hour must be moved to Friday. It is currently set on Fri from 2:40-4:00 in PSF-462. We may be able to move to 1:40-3:00 later in the semester. 01/22 There was some confusion about how to determine your 9-digit PRS number if there were less than 9 digits on the back of your clicker. Hopefully, we have now got that straightened out. The new instructions are here.
