Homework Assignments

The homework problems in the WileyPlus system are due weekly on Sunday at 6:00pm. All WileyPlus homework must be completed by the due time on the due date. No exceptions allowed. The due dates for specific chapters are indicated on the schedule page, and the problems are listed below. Since the WileyPlus server might have problems occasionally, be sure to start the assignments early and turn in your answers steadily, rather than all on the last day. Answers can be entered individually.

Most answers are numerical, and need to be within a certain tolerance (currently set to 2%) of the correct answer. Use three significant digits to enter your answer; do not round off intermediate calculations. You get an instant feedback as to whether the answer is correct or not. You usually have up to 5 attempts to get the correct answer.

VERY IMPORTANT: Homework problems, worked out by YOURSELF, is the most important component of learning physics. After the homework is assignment is due, the solutions become available. Please take advantage of this to review the homework, especially so if you failed to solve any of the assigned problems. This will help prepare you for discussion section quizzes and for exams.
