Journal Article Detail Page

American Journal of Physics
written by Beth A. Lindsey, Paula R. L. Heron, and Peter S. Shaffer
The authors discuss students' ability to apply the concepts of work and energy to situations in which the internal structure of a system cannot be ignored, that is, the system cannot be treated as a particle. Several difficulties were identified, including failure to associate work with the change in energy of the system.
