Riveros, Héctor G. – European Journal of Physics Education, 2019
This paper discusses the importance of one of the most crucial elements in science and technology education: the development of the individual capacity to cope with new problems. Also, discuss the importance of being aware of the existence of "formative objectives" and "tacit knowledge". In the planning of a course, taking into…

Balukovic, Jasmina; Slisko, Josip – European Journal of Physics Education, 2018
A recent textbook research, carried out on a sample of 20 American physics textbooks, shows that the authors mainly keep the old definition of weight. According to that definition, the weight of a body is the gravitational force on the body. In such a conceptual frame, the objects in the spaceship are "apparently weightless" because they…

Dean, Kevin; Mathew, Jyothi – European Journal of Physics Education, 2016
A theoretical analysis is presented, showing the derivations of seven different linearization equations for the conical pendulum period "T", as a function of radial and angular parameters. Experimental data obtained over a large range of fixed conical pendulum lengths (0.435 m-2.130 m) are plotted with the theoretical lines and…

Ramírez Díaz, Mario H.; Nieto Betance, Gabriela; García Trujillo, Luís Antonio; Chávez-Campos, David A. – European Journal of Physics Education, 2015
In its program of studies for preschool level, the Secretary of Public Education of Mexico promoted development of four standards of science: Scientific knowledge, applications of scientific knowledge and technology, skills associated to science, and attitudes associated to science. However, to develop this skills and reach out the standards there…

Bogacz, Bogdan F.; Pedziwiatr, Antoni T. – European Journal of Physics Education, 2014
A simple and fast experimental method of determining absolute zero temperature is presented. Air gas thermometer coupled with pressure sensor and data acquisition system COACH is applied in a wide range of temperature. By constructing a pressure vs temperature plot for air under constant volume it is possible to obtain--by extrapolation to zero…

Miryala, Santosh; Koblischka, M. R. – European Journal of Physics Education, 2014
The construction and operation of a prototype high-"Tc" superconducting train model is presented. The train is levitated by a melt-processed GdBa[subscript 2]Cu[subscript 3]O[subscript x] (Gd-123) superconducting material over a magnetic rail (track). The oval shaped track is constructed in S-N-S or PM3N configuration arranged on an iron…

Ajredini, Fadil; Izairi, Neset; Zajkov, Oliver – European Journal of Physics Education, 2014
This research investigates the influence of computer simulations (virtual experiments) on one hand and real experiments on the other hand on the conceptual understanding of electrical charging. The investigated sample consists of students in the second year (10th grade) of three gymnasiums in Macedonia. There were two experimental groups and one…

Marušic, Mirko; Sliško, Josip – European Journal of Physics Education, 2014
This study is based on two exploratory questions with the aim of determining the relative effectiveness of two different student activities, called "Reading, Presenting and Questioning" (RPQ) and "Experimenting and Discussing" (ED), in changing students' perceptions and attitudes about the impact of physics learning on the…

Kuhn, Jochen; Vogt, Patrik – European Journal of Physics Education, 2013
New media technology becomes more and more important for our daily life as well as for teaching physics. Within the scope of our N.E.T. research project we develop experiments using New Media Experimental Tools (N.E.T.) in physics education and study their influence on students learning abilities. We want to present the possibilities e.g. of…

Sznitman, Josué; Stone, Howard A.; Smits, Alexander J.; Grotberg, James B. – European Journal of Physics Education, 2013
Dimensional analysis is often a subject reserved for students of fluid mechanics. However, the principles of scaling and dimensional analysis are applicable to various physical problems, many of which can be introduced early on in a university physics curriculum. Here, we revisit one of the best-known examples from a first course in classic…

Singh, Satya Pal – European Journal of Physics Education, 2013
In this paper of I have reviewed the test done for validating the special theory of relativity using masers and lasers in last one century. Michelson-Morley did the first experimental verification for the isotropy of space for the propagation of light in 1887. It has an accuracy of 1/100th of a fringe shift. The predicted fringe shift on the basis…

Bülbül, M. Sahin – European Journal of Physics Education, 2013
This study describes an approach for blind students thought health physics about how they could set a hypothesis and test it. The participant of the study used some health materials designed for high school blind student and tested her hypothesis with the data she gathered with those materials. It was asked that she should hypothesize which could…

Tsutsumanova, Gichka; Russev, Stoyan – European Journal of Physics Education, 2013
A simple experiment demonstrating the excitation of a standing wave in a metal string is presented here. Several tasks using the set-up are considered, which help the students to better understand the standing waves, the interaction between electric current and magnetic field and the resonance phenomena. This can serve also as a good lecture…
