TIME = 2.0 hr
Please read the following instructions:
1. Do not start the examination until you are instructed to do so.
2. Allowed aid: calculator.
3. The last page gives a list of equations; you may remove that page if you wish.
4. There are 15 multiple choice questions and 4 problems. The exam booklet is 11 pages long:
make sure you have a complete examination before you begin. Contact an invigilator if you
do not have a complete examination paper.
5. On the computer answer sheet, use an HB (or #2) pencil to “bubble in”

• your 7-digit ID#
• your answers to the multiple choice questions
(leave the “Section” number blank)
6. Write your problem solutions in detail on the blank spaces below the problems. Your solution
must make clear what your symbols mean, where you started, what you did, and why you did
it.
7. When you have completed the examination, hand in all question sheets and the computer answer
sheet.
8. Total marks: 70 (Allot your time accordingly.)

3. Consider red light of wavelength 633 nm, and green light of wavelength 537 nm. Which of
thefollowing statements is true?
a) A photon of red light always has more energy than a photon of green light.
b) A photon of red light always has less energy than a photon of green light.
c) A photon of red light always has the same energy as a photon of green light.
d) A photon of red light can have more ener gy, less energy, or the same en ergy as a
photon of green light. It depends on the relative brightness of the red light a nd the
green light.
e) A stoplight emits light of wavelength 537 nm.

11. You are doing research in the rain forest in southern Brazil, and spot a Howler
monkey up in a tree ahead of you. The monkey is 215 m above the ground. In order
to study the monkey, you need to hit it with a tranquilizer dart. You aim your dart
gun 33˚ to the horizontal and fire from ground level. What speed does the dart need
to leave the gun in order to just reach the monkey? ( i.e. assume that the dart
reaches the monkey when the dart is at its highest point in its path)
