    The frictional force is one of the obstacles to learning in physics. By itself, this topic consists of complicated ideas. In this study, we have investigated Thai students’ ideas about directions and types of frictional forces by using open-ended questions and interviews. For example,...

    The finite deformation theory of rubber and related materials is based on energy functions that describe the macroscopic response of these materials under deformation. Energy functions and elastic constants are here derived from a simple microscopic (ball-and-spring) model. Exact uniaxial...

    At STAIF-2006, the author presented research into the Mach-Effect and its spin-off, the Mach-Lorentz Thruster (MLT); both of which were created by Woodward. Herein, these MLTs are assessed to see how they could impact the transportation industry if the MLT’s force output scales as...

    One promising Field propulsion system which gets ahead of all existing methods of propulsion systems utilizes the ubiquitous infinite space, more specifically, vacuum. An extraction of thrust from the excited quantum vacuum is indispensable to the development of field propulsion. It is possible...

    Traditional instruction on energy often presents forms of energy as a seemingly arbitrary list to be memorized, with little discussion of the meaning or purpose of these forms. Learners often struggle to make sense of these forms, and neither physicists nor physics educators are explicit about...

    Energy concepts are fundamental across the sciences, yet these concepts can be fragmented along disciplinary boundaries, rather than integrated into a coherent whole. To teach physics effectively to biology students, we need to understand students' disciplinary perspectives. We present interview...
