					                              Physics 2A                  Practice Final Exam

I don’t have the answers yet but will work them out before class on Tuesday. Given my tight time
schedule now it’s probably a good idea to come to Tuesday’s class if you want to make sure to
get the answers since I don’t know if I’ll have time to go back and edit and replace the file. I’ll
keep regular office hours through Wednesday. I have tons of meetings and research to catch up
on after Wednesday but if you want to see me Thursday or Friday email or call to make an
appointment. The formula sheet as usual is an approximation of the one that you will have for the
final. Good luck studying for finals
