Finding the Equation for a Vibrating Car Antenna.
Newburgh, Ronald; Newburgh, G. Alexander
Physics Teacher, v38 n1 p31-34 Jan 2000
Presents the physical assumptions and mathematical expressions necessary to derive a fourth-order differential equation that describes the vibration of a particular car antenna. Contends that while students may not be able to derive or use the equation, they should be able to appreciate a guided derivation as an example of how physics is done. (WRM)
