The following text is used only for teaching, research, scholarship, educational use and informative purpose following the fair use principles. We thank the authors of the texts and the source web site that give us the opportunity to share their knowledge. Many of the steps we use to solve a problem we carry out unconsciously. They are a part of the way we think, and we just seem to know how to do them without thinking about how we go about doing them. This is just like walking were once learned, we no longer need to be consciously aware of the multitude of operations taking place when we decide to walk from one class to another. It seems that once we have learned the details of some process through conscious effort, this process is still available to us just by evoking the process itself: "walk to the door and open it" or "plug this value into that equation".
Solving physics problems
Physics Problem Solving Site - Physics Meta Stack Exchange
In a physics problem, there is usually more information than you can comfortably keep in your head at once. You need a good diagram, a good list, a good way of keeping track of information. Problem solving is a process of taking one small step at a time. You just keep adding things to your diagram, trying things out, getting more information, until patterns start to emerge. This problem is really really hard. Then, step two, simplify the problem.
15 Problems to Solve If You Want to be a Billionaire
I spent quite some time this morning going over some coursework problems with my second-year Physics class. After returning the marked scripts I then go through general matters arising with them, as well as making the solutions available on our on-line system called Learning Central. Anyway, this morning I decided to devote quite a bit of time to some tips about how to tackle physics problems, not only in terms of how to solve them but also how to present the answer in an appropriate way.
