Midterm Exam

For some practice for your Midterm next week here are some problems that I put together that will give you a broad overview of everything you have gone over so far


My solutions: solutions-practice-midterm-1-sp17 

**NOTE: for #5-45 the coordinate for C should be (0,1.5,0) m. The work for the problem is correct and the final answers are correct. I probably got distracted by a plot twist in House of Cards and was like “Let’s put a negative sign where it doesn’t belong Kirsten!”.  Again, I am not perfect. 

Good Luck!
