The required end of semester post survey* is available at You are
required to take the online survey by Friday December 12th at midnight; it will
take about 15 to 20 minutes to complete.
Final reminder: December 7, 500 PM was the last day and time to request
conflict exam for Final Exam (can request conflict exam if have another exam at
same time OR have 3 exams in 24 hour period). Must e-mail Professor Cizewski
[email protected] with details of why you are requesting conflict
All of the instructors in Physics 227 would appreciate your completing the online course evaluations for the lectures and its associated recitations. We take
these evaluations seriously as we strive to improve the effectiveness of our
*You are required to complete all four parts of the pre and post tests and
surveys, but you have a no-penalty option of having your data withheld from
the study if you choose not to participate. Your responses to these tests and
surveys will have no bearing on your course grade. Your instructors will not see
your scores, and will keep track only whether or not you took the tests. To get
full credit for this required part of the course you must complete all four
Preparation for the Final Exam
(a) Start earlier!
(b) Review the concepts (lectures + textbook) and prepare your equation
sheet. Think how you can use every equation on your sheet, what types of
problems can be solved with these equations.
(c) Work on practice exams.
(d) Review all HW and Iclicker questions.
(e) If you still have time/questions, go over the end-of-chapter problems
(you don’t need to solve them, just check that you know how to approach
At the Exam
(a) Make sure you understand the problem, read the problem formulation
carefully. Make a drawing!!! If you remain uncertain raise your hand and
ask the proctors.
(b) Get the units right. It is easy to eliminate the answers with wrong units.
This applies to formulas too.
Maxwell’s Equations
 Gauss’s Law: electric flux begins and ends on charges (or at infinity).

 ∙ ⃗ =
 ∙ ⃗ = 0
 ∙ ⃗ = −
 ∙ ⃗ = 0 �

 No magnetic monopoles; magnetic field lines don’t begin or end.

 Faraday’s Law of electromagnetic induction; a time-dependent ΦB generates E.

�  ∙ ⃗
 Generalized Ampere’s Law; B is produced by both currents and time-dependent ΦE.

 The force on charge.

A metal ring with diameter d =4 cm is placed between the
north and south poles of large magnets with the plane of
its area perpendicular to the magnetic field. These
magnets produce an initial uniform field of B =1 T
between them. The magnets are gradually pulled apart,
causing this field to remain uniform but decrease steadily
at 0.25 T/s. What are

ring and (b) in which direction does the current flow as
viewed by someone on the south pole of
the magnet?
