Development of the Concepts of Energy Conservation and Entropy.
Shultz, Thomas R.; Coddington, Marilyn
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v31 n1 p131-53 Feb 1981
Studied the development of the concepts of energy conservation and entropy in 5- to 15-year-old children. Energy conservation was not well understood until about age 15. Entropy was understood by 9- to 15-year-olds when the concept was illustrated by the gradual mixing of differently colored, rolling marbles. (Author/DB)
