Solutions will be posted after the due date and these solutions may be used as a resource for solving pledged problems. In addition, the solutions to some of these problems are included in DIVA.

These problems are from Physics for Scientists and Engineers by Fishbane, Gasiorowicz and Thornton, 3rd Edition. Please do try the highlighted or conceptual problems in each section also. The problems are listed so that 3-8 means problem 8 from the end of chapter 3.

Note that unlike for the pledged problems, for these suggested problems we strongly encourage you to get as much help as you need to be able to do them -- from fellow students, in tutorial sessions, from your instructors, or other sources including DIVA, the Digital Instructional Video Archive.

Those who wish to turn these problems in for credit should do so by 5 pm on the due date in the boxes marked Phys101/102 in the Physics Lounge.
