This study focuses on students’ use of the mathematical concept of differentials in physics problem solving. For instance, in electrostatics, students need to set up an integral to find the electric field due to a charged ...

Jones, Dyan L.; Zollman, Dean A.
(2014)
We present a qualitative study designed to examine how students construct an understanding of the human eye and vision from their knowledge of light and optics. As would be expected, vast differences are shown to exist ...

We show that a returning electron wave packet in highorder harmonic generation (HHG) with midinfrared laser pulses converges to a universal limit for a laser wavelength above about 3 μm. The results are consistent among ...

(2013)
Calculus is used across many physics topics from introductory to upperdivision courses. The fundamental concepts of differentiation and integration are important tools for solving realworld problems involving nonuniformly ...

Rice, Reginald H.; Gnecco, Enrico; Wannemacher, Reinhold; Szoszkiewicz, Robert
(2013)
We demonstrate how the wear response of a polymer surface can be effi ciently characterized by atomic force microscopy (AFM) using a spiral scan with a thermal tip. If the spiral is scanned at constant angular speed in the ...
