  • Course Outline
  • Final Exam is April 11th, 1 PM - 4 PM
    • EN 2043 (A- Skinner) and EN 1052 (Smith - Z). Please show up at the correct room. If you go to the wrong room for the wrong reasons, you will waste your time. You will be redirected to the correct room.
    • You are permitted to take with you the Powerpoint lecture slides and 2 pages (both sides) of formulas. If you wish to reduce the slides, you can eliminate the problem statements, etc, which are not of much use. If you do not want the slides, that is your choice, but you are limited to the 2 pages of formulas. No examples and no negotiations. Anyone found in posession of worked problems will have them removed.
    • I will provide any tables and figures of data if required in better quality.
    • Sample exams from 2011 and 2005. No detailed solutions to these exams will be provided as I only have 2011's. We have worked out solutions to 3 problems (1, 2, and 4) from 2011 in class/tutorial. Problem 3 (2011): It takes about 333 s, for the oil drop to surface.
