Our final exam will be at 9am on December 11th (Monday) in our regular meeting room Small 111. We will cover everything except materials presented during this week (chapters 16 and 17 - Waves and Sound) also do not worry about Damped and Forced oscillators.

I am posting the final exam which was given in 2022 at BlackBoard, so you could assess its difficulty.

Note: the final exam day and time are unmovable (except for people with SAS accommodations). If you have to change the day and time you should contact the Undergraduate Dean to obtain permission.

The midterm will cover material presented in lectures 01-26 (excluding introduction to fluids)

The sample midterm is available at BlackBoard.

The midterm will cover material presented in lectures 01-18 (excluding the Center of Mass discussion).

The sample midterm is available at BlackBoard.

The midterm will cover material presented in lectures 01-08

Please watch complimentary video about resistive forces, i.e. drag and effects of viscosity. Even though in the lecture the motion of the spheres is discussed. You can think about pipes as “inverted” spheres, than you would see the connection to discussion of viscose flow in Ch14.7 of the text book. This is, by the way, your reading assignment.

By the way, I strongly recommend other lectures by Dr. Lewin.

Magnus effect should be described from drag point of view, even though Bernoulli equation idea gives the right answer too.

Lizard running on water when action is fast fluid has no time to move away and behave similar to solids.

Incompressibility of water, the full video is super good lecture about fluids.

- Egyptian Pyramids
- Greeks Acropolis pillars
- Rome Archs, note horizontal beams inside
- Truss
- Suspension bridge
