Iclicker Question #0 Please fill out course evaluations (for this course and all of your other courses) When is the due date/time for online course evaluations? A)Weds May 11 th, Last day of classes, midnight B)Thursday May 12 th, Reading day, noon C)Thursday May 12 th, Reading day, midnight D)Monday May 16 th, Phys 111 Exam day, 11:30AM E)Thursday, May 19 th, last day of final exams, midnight
NJIT COURSE EVALUATION for FALL 2013 Your input does make a difference! It is important that as many students as possible complete the course evaluation. Your feedback is used to help the university evaluate and improve courses and instruction. The course evaluation site will be active from 9 am Tuesday, November 12th until midnight of Thursday, December 12th. The online course evaluations can be accessed 24/7 from any location via the internet. The course evaluation consists of only 11 rating questions and 3 open-ended comment questions. It should take less than 3 minutes to complete. Please visit URL: to complete the online course evaluation form for your course(s). Use your NJIT UCID and UCID password (same as “Highlander Pipeline”) to login. PLEASE NOTE: The 11 rating questions refer to PROF. FEDERICI. If you have comments on your RECITATION instructor, please use the open-ended comment questions.

For spherically symmetric objects, you can replace them by point masses
Cavendish Experiment – Measuring G
Iclicker Question #2 Which statement is false regarding gravitational forces? A)The weight of an object is different if it is at sea level on the New Jersey shore compared to its value if it is on top of Mt. Everest. B)The acceleration due to gravity g depends on where on the earths surface it is measured. C)The gravitational force of the earth on the moon depends on the velocity of the moon relative to the earth. D)The acceleration of an object in geo-synchronous orbit (fixed above a specific location on the earth’s surface) is NOT zero. E) mass, inertial mass, and gravitational mass are all the same thing.

B)Black holes are so vain, that they think that they are the center of the galaxy. C)A black hole and the federal deficit are equivalent D)It feels like physics class…. I can not seem to get out of it. E)Black holes can not be seen.
