The Pendulum: A Stumbling Block of Secondary School Mechanics.
Czudkova, Lenka; Musilova, Jana
Physics Education, v35 n6 p428-35 Nov 2000
Refers to the somewhat surprising fact that questions connected with the mechanics of such popular physical models as the simple and conical pendulum seem to be difficult not only for secondary school students but for those taking introductory university courses in physics. Briefly analyzes two tests concerning both simple pendulum and conical pendulum at secondary school level. (Author/ASK)
