Zajkov, Oliver; Mitrevski, Boce – European Journal of Physics Education, 2012
Students have problems with understanding, using and interpreting graphs. In order to improve the students' skills for working with graphs, we propose Manual Video Measurement (MVM). In this paper, the MVM method is explained and its accuracy is tested. The comparison with the standardized video data software shows that its accuracy is comparable…

Tongaonkar, S. S.; Khadse, V. R. – European Journal of Physics Education, 2011
Conical pendulum is similar to simple pendulum with the difference that the bob, instead of moving back and forth, swings around in a horizontal circle. Thus, in a conical pendulum the bob moves at a constant speed in a circle with the string tracing out a cone. This paper describes an experiment with conical pendulum, with determination of g from…

Baytak, Ahmet – European Journal of Physics Education, 2011
The tendency that there is a global warming issue and the environmental disaster through out the world became top news in media. While scientist and politicians are gathering to find solution for the environmental issues, educators are aware of that a sustainable future needs an effective education for today's children. However, how these children…

Tambade, Popat S. – European Journal of Physics Education, 2011
The objective of this article is to graphically illustrate to the students the physical phenomenon of motion of charged particle under the action of simultaneous electric and magnetic fields by simulating particle motion on a computer. Differential equations of motions are solved analytically and path of particle in three-dimensional space are…

Shivalingaswamy, T.; Kagali, B. A. – European Journal of Physics Education, 2011
Energy eigenvalues for a non-relativistic particle in a linear potential well are available. In this paper we obtain the eigenenergies for a relativistic spin less particle in a similar potential using an extension of the well-known WKB method treating the potential as the time component of a four-vector potential. Since genuine bound states do…

Singh, Satya Pal; Singh, Apoorva; Hareet, Prabhav – European Journal of Physics Education, 2011
The progress of modern cosmology took off in 1917 when A. Einstein published his paper on general theory of relativity extending his work of special theory of relativity (1905). In 1922 Alexander Friedmann constructed a mathematical model for expanding Universe that had a big bang in remote past. The experimental evidences could come in 1929 by…

Slisko, Josip; Hadzibegovic, Zalkida – European Journal of Physics Education, 2011
Since long time ago, many authors advocated for more presence of physics history in physics teaching and learning in order to give students a better vision of the "nature of science", in other words, to let them learn not only established physics knowledge but also the ways of how physicists managed to get that knowledge. Generally,…

Ivchenko, Vladimir V. – European Journal of Physics Education, 2011
In this article a thin optical lens model is considered. It is shown that the limits of its applicability are determined not only by the ratio between the thickness of the lens and the modules of the radii of curvature, but above all its geometric type. We have derived the analytical criteria for the applicability of the model for different types…

Syam, Debapriyo; Roy, Arup – European Journal of Physics Education, 2011
The Bohr-Sommerfeld quantum theory specifies the rules of quantization for circular and elliptical orbits for a one-electron hydrogen atom-like system. This article illustrates how a formula connecting the principal quantum number "n" and the length of the major axis of an elliptical orbit may be arrived at starting from the quantum…

Mesic, Vanes – European Journal of Physics Education, 2011
For the purposes of tailoring physics instruction in accordance with the needs and abilities of the students it is useful to explore the knowledge structure of students of different ability levels. In order to precisely differentiate the successive, characteristic states of student achievement it is necessary to use test items that possess…

Akarsu, Bayram – European Journal of Physics Education, 2011
In present paper, we propose a new diagnostic test to measure students' conceptual knowledge of principles of modern physics topics. Over few decades since born of physics education research (PER), many diagnostic instruments that measure students' conceptual understanding of various topics in physics, the earliest tests developed in PER are Force…
