Exam will be a mixture of multiple choice and show-your-work problems. It is planned
that there will be at least one show-your-work problem for each chapter (except Ch. 38).
For Show Work problems: Show all work for partial credit. Attach your own paper, if
necessary. Remember to specify units and indicate sign or direction, where appropriate.
You may use one regular (3” x 5”) index card for your formulas or any other notes or
diagrams you think you may need (front &amp; back).
Required values for properties of materials will be provided.
