A* [pdf] Notes: Newtonian mechanics (updated 2009 Apr 07) Very compact preview/review notes. B* [pdf] Notes: Damped harmonic motion Explains damped harmonic motion conceptually with the aid of graphs. For some reason, these graphs seem to be rare. [pdf] Notes: Gauss's law Gives a sense of the range of application of Gauss's law. [pdf] Notes: Dipole potential energy Answers a question asked in one of my discussion sections. [pdf] Notes: Circuit "dividers" Shows convenient circuit equations. [pdf] Notes: Right hand rules Shows the various right hand rules that are used. [pdf] Problem: Pendulum collision Shows all the (correct) details of a problem we did in discussion session and emphasizes that the mechanical energy is not conserved. [pdf] Problem: E from point-source integral Shows how to do an integral to get the electric field E of a plane of charge, both taking advantage of symmetry and disregarding symmetry. [pdf] Problem: Doppler effect in wind Emphasizes that the doppler effect equation refers to velocities with respect to the medium's rest frame, for practice before an exam. [pdf] Problem: "Solving" a circuit with Kirchhoff's circuit laws Shows how to use Kirchhoff's circuit laws. [pdf] Review for final exam worksheet and [pdf] solutions From a review session for Professor Corbin's class. C* [pdf] Problem: Biot-Savart law Explains how to solve for the magnetic field due to a current distribution. [pdf] Problem: "Apparent depth" ray diagram Elaborates on a problem we did in discussion session. [pdf] Notes: Conventions for mirror, interface, and lens equations Explains fairly clearly the conventions of these equations. [pdf] Notes: Conventions for mirror and lens equations Explains the sign conventions of these equations, and gives an alternate, consistent convention using axes. (Sometime I'll have to summarize this other convention system in the manner done in the previous paper above.)
