Wednesday Homework 3 Field Maps and Gauss’ Law

Homework is due at the beginning of the Wednesday lecture. It must be handwritten, not typeset. The multiplechoice answers must be circled. In the space after the problem, a short justification of each multiple-choice the answer must be included. The open-response answers must be worked out clearly using good physics presentation and will be graded on correctness and how carefully the work is explained. The problems should be worked in the space after the problem on the assignment printout; additional paper may be used if needed. No credit will be given for answers without appropriate supporting work. Minimum good presentation requires the following: (1) Symbolic expression for any formula, (2) Manipulation of symbolic expressions, not numeric expressions, (3) Substitution of numbers with units, (4) Reporting final answers with correct units and vector expressions, (5) Enough English description to allow the reader to have some idea what you are doing without looking at the
