The Gravity Model for High School Students
Tribble, Paul; Mitchell, William A.
Journal of Geography, 76, 5, 179-82, Sep/Oct 77
The authors suggest ways in which the gravity model can be used in high school geography classes. Based on Newton's Law of Molecular Gravitation, the law states that gravitation is in direct ratio to mass and inverse ratio to distance. One activity for students involves determination of zones of influence of cities of various sizes. (Author/AV)
