The Long Decay Model of One-Dimensional Projectile Motion
Lattery, Mark Joseph
Science & Education, v17 n7 p779-798 Aug 2008
This article introduces a research study on student model formation and development in introductory mechanics. As a point of entry, I present a detailed analysis of the Long Decay Model of one-dimensional projectile motion. This model has been articulated by Galileo ("in De Motu") and by contemporary students. Implications for instruction are discussed.
