 +====Live clarifications from the June 10 exam====
 +  * **Problem 2C**: "in the opposite direction"​ means "​opposite to the motion of the ship"
 +  * **Problem 2D**: "how long" means "find the duration (time) of"
 +  * **Problem 3**: in **parts D, E, F** use  "mass of the electron",​ not the mass of <​sup>​90</​sup>​Y found in **part B**
