Physics 112 Summer 2006 Exam 4 Thursday, August 3

Directions:
This exam consists of twenty six multiple-choice questions. The questions on this test are not in order of difficulty. You must mark all of your answers on both your test and answer sheet. In marking the multiple choice bubble sheet use a number 2 pencil. Do not use ink. If you did not bring a pencil, ask for one. Fill in the appropriate circles completely. If you need to change any entry, you must completely erase your previous entry. Carefully read each question and its five possible answers. Select one and only one answer for each question. Choose the answer that is closest to the correct one. You have a sheet in the back of the test that you may use for any extra rough work. When you are finished with the exam, place all exam materials, including the bubble sheet, the exam itself, and scratch paper that you used for the exam, in your folder and return the folder. Good luck!
