Energy Transfer and a Recurring Mathematical Function
Atkin, Keith
Physics Education, v48 n5 p616-620 Sep 2013
This paper extends the interesting work of a previous contributor concerning the analogies between physical phenomena such as mechanical collisions and the transfer of power in an electric circuit. Emphasis is placed on a mathematical function linking these different areas of physics. This unifying principle is seen as an exciting opportunity to enhance both teaching and learning by illustrating the power and subtleties of similarities in physics.
