Physics 196 Quiz and Homework Problems 2020


Because I am letting you use either the 13th edition or the 14th edition of the text book, I will assign homework problems that appear in both editions. These won’t always have the same number. For example, problem 21.30 in the 13th ed. is 21.42 in the 14th ed. Therefore the numbering scheme for individual problems will be “edition.chapter.problem”, e.g. 13.21.30 or 14.21.42. For lists of problems the nomenclature will be “Ch. xx- [E13: p1, p2, p3]; [E14: p1′, p2′, p3′]”, e.g. Ch. 21- [E13: 84, 89,104]; [E14: 75, 79, 91].

Problems marked with a * differ from one edition to the other in one or more numerical values. The solution goes through the same steps so they are effectively the same problem even if the numerical answer is different. Let me know if you think there is a typo in any assignment.
