The book NJIT Physics 103 you can buy at NJIT book store. Volume II. ISBN13: 9781424079247 ISBN10: 1424079241
Physics Laboratory Manual: the laboratory schedule and the links to labs are listed in the syllabus below.
The associated laboratory course Phys 103 A is to be taken concurrently. The laboratory schedule is included in the table below.
PLEASE NOTE: YOU MUST REGISTER FOR THE LECTURE/RECITATION
COURSE 103, AND
THE LAB COURSE 103L. WITHDRAWAL FROM
EITHER PHYSICS COURSE WILL CAUSE A SIMULTANEOUS WITHDRAWAL FROM ALL OTHER
PHYSICS COURSES.
Your final grade in Physics 103 will be determined by your performance on the following:
1) Common Exams Three common quizzes will be given during the semester. The schedule is:
Common Quiz QZ1 Feb 21 (Tuesday) TIER LEC2 4:00 pm 5:25 pm

Exact Equation page for CQZ3
2) Final Exam A comprehensive examination of the entire semester's work will be given
during Finals Week at the end of the semester.
3) Lecture Quizzes A short Quiz will be given during each Lecture covering the work of the
preceding week
3) Homework Problems from the Textbook (see the Table below). Hardcopies of the solutions to be submitted to
Eric Standard (mailbox at the Physics Office, TIER Hall 4^{th} floor)
Deadlines are on Mondays next week after the Lecture, 5pm
For example, HW2 is due on Monday, Jan 30^{th}.
Here are the approximate weights to be used for calculating the final grade and the final grade scale:
50 % for two common exams ( 25% each) 80% and more  A
35 % for the final exam 68%  79 %  B
10 % for the total homework grade and 55%  67%  C
5% LQZs 50%  54%  D
49% and less  F
QZs and Final Exam results WONT be curved
