Subject Reading Reading Response Problem Set
CM Taylor 7.6-7.10

CM PS #10: 7.27, 7.29, 7.30, 7.34, 7.35, 7.41, 7.49, 7.50, 7.52

notes:

  • 7.27 and 7.49 are removed from the assignment.
  • For 7.30, I didn’t find the suggestion to “Use a trick similar to the one used in Equation (5.11)” to be helpful. We’ll discuss another way together.
  • You can do 7.34(b) using the result given in 7.34(a), even if you can’t get that result yourself. We’ll discuss another way together.
  • For 7.35, all the motion is in a horizontal plane.
  • For 7.52, convince yourself that the geometry requires x = Rφ so the constraint is f(x, φ) = x – Rφ = 0.
EM

Griffiths 5.3-5.4

EM PS#10: 5.14, 5.15, 5.16, 5.24, 5.25, 5.30, 5.35, 5.36, 5.37(a), 5.48

notes:

  • 5.30 and 5.36 removed from assignment.
  • 5.37 reduced to just 5.37(a).
  • for 5.16, use the results of Ex. 5.9 and superposition
