Physics 203 - Homework Assignments

The homework sets are due every Wednesday before class. While students are encouraged to form study-groups to better deal with the material presented in class, it is expected that each student individually works out the problems alone! As usual, the Duke Undergraduate Honor Code applies.

Unless explicitely noted, the problems have to solved without the help of mathematical software packages like Mathematica or Maple.

You have to include explanations in your solution - we are not only interested in the final result, but also in how you obtained it. Any solution without a satisfactory amount of intermediate steps and explanations will incur point deductions - the same applies to illegible handwriting and sloppy presentation of the solution.

Even though the problems are due on Wednesday, it is unwise to first start working on them Monday or Tuesday night. Plan on starting on them prior to the weekend so you can invest the added time if needed!
