QUIZ Today on electric potential energy and potential.   

Then after the quiz, we'll work on more complex example problems in preparation for your test. 
Homework: First, make sure that you fully understand all of the problems we went over in class.  If you don't understand them, make sure you get help, either from a friend or by emailing me to set up an appointment.  If those were fairly straightforward for you, then do some extra problems from the textbook for practice until you convince yourself that you understand the material.  Some good ones are Ch. 15 #48, 49, 51a-b, 52a, 54 and Ch 16 #10-19.  Answers to Practice Textbook Problems.  If you think you understand the problems, make sure you understand the concepts by reading sections in the book:  15.1-15.4 (ignore equation with area of parallel plates, 16.1.  Take responsibility for your own learning!  You choose how to spend this very valuable time.  Make an appointment with me if you think you need help!  Unit test on electrostatics scheduled for Wednesday, March 28th.  If you know you are leaving for vacation early, please email me to reschedule your test for BEFORE you leave.
