Anyone know of some basic physics papers to 'critique'?

  1. May 5, 2013 #1
    Hey,

    I have been put in the position in which I have required to write a formal 'critique' of a physics related journal article. The catch is that I am limited to more basic theories as the people who will be reading the critique are from the facaulty of arts, which blew all of my ideas out the window.

    Does anyone know of any articles which discuss basic physical phenomena which might 'critiqueable',
    in the sense that their arguments may be plausible, or maybe ever more opinion based (which I know is kind of rare).

    I have found one on a paradox in thermodynamics but it's two pages long whereas I am required to provide a several page critique.

    Any help is greatly appreciated,

    Thanks.

    Try this one

    On force and the inertial frame, Robert W. Brehme, Am. J. Phys. 53(10), October 1985

    It addresses the definition of force and the circularity of previous definitions of it. It's an interesting read.
