For the final exam, please bring pencil, scale, protractor, and a non programmable scientific calculator. Borrowing in the exam hall will not be allowed Please note - you will NOT be allowed to use your mobile phone as a calculator. Based on the question asked, diagrams can be approximate schematic diagrams that clearly convey the concept being asked. Exact dimensions are not very critical. Have a good exam! prathap


Assignment 1,2 marks

Dear student,
Please find the assignment 1& 2 marks from the links given below. There were some confusions in the first assignment. Ewald sphere was not taught in the first week, but we released the Ewald sphere unit on 27.01.15 and we gave the deadline of assignment 1 as 10.02.15. So there were about 15 days to learn the concepts. So we have given zero marks for those who haven't submitted the second question.
