1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Ok, I have an assignment in which I'm supposed to look around the internet and check out different reliable news sources (CNN, NPR, Time Magazine, Sports Illustrated, National Geographic, etc). My assignment is to try and find an advertisement that misuses a physics concept/terminology. I am allowed to use an advertisement that used the physics concept/terminology correctly, but I think it looks better to find a "bad" advertisement. Anyway, I found this article and was going to write my paper up on this, explaining the physics behind everything, but I'm not sure if it will be counted for the assignment. The following is the exact wording of the assignment: "You will be looking for examples of physics used in advertisements in everyday literature such as a magazine and newspapers. You must submit a Xerox copy or an original copy of the advertisement and an evaluation of the physics used in the advertisement. In particular, was the physics terminology used correctly? Why or why not? Justify your answers with an explanation." The article I chose to use is located here: http://money.cnn.com/magazines/business2/business2_archive/2006/03/01/8370588/index.htm My only problem is whether or not this article could be counted for this assignment? I know the goal behind the concept is basically to find some "public-knowledge" literature like the stuff CNN produces which uses physics terminology/ concepts in their explanations and this is why I chose this article. I was wondering what your opinion would be on this matter and if you think I need to find an official "advertisement," then where would be a good place to start? Thanks for any help/ links!
