General application of what we learnt over lectures 4, 5 and 6.
- Assignment 3: momentum, heat and mass transfer with one or more variables, due on Thursday Mar 17th, end of lecture.
Problems of variable level of difficulty, covering lectures 7 to 12.
Assignments (optional, but good practice for final exam !)

Lectures 14, 15 and 16.
- Assignment 5: macroscopic momentum and heat transfer.
Lectures 17 and 18.
Solutions to assignments:
- Examples of mid-term exams from previous years.
Please note that these exams lasted 2.5hours while ours will last 1hour
and 30min only.
- Examples of final exams: Example1 and Example2 from previous years.
Please note that these exams lasted 3hours while ours will last 2hours only.
