Astronomy 161: Review Guide for Third Quiz


Same as for previous quizzes. The quiz will have 10 multiple choice questions, and it will occupy the first 20 minutes of Friday's class. If you will be absent on Friday, you must let me know in advance, preferably by email, in order to be allowed to take the makeup quiz next week. You may bring 1 page (both sides) of handwritten notes. You may bring a calculator, but you will not need it.

Please bring a number 2 pencil.


The quiz will cover the material in Lectures 11-14: light, atoms, telescopes, solar system overview, and the age, composition, and structure of the Earth. The reading for these lectures is chapters 5 and 6, sections 1-5 of chapter 7, and section 2 of chapter 9.
