ion in physical reasoning. Approximation and abstraction in physical reasoning takes many forms: Objects of complex characteristics can be approximated by objects of simpler characteristics (for example, a real resistor by an ideal resistor or a curved object by a polyhedral object), a group of objects can be approximated by a single object (figure 10), and a group of simple objects can be approximated by a single complex object (for example, a chain of rigid links by a string). The case where…

Approximation and Abstraction in Solid Object Kinematics
Physical reasoning often involves approximating or abstracting the situation or the theory at hand. This paper studies the nature of approximation and abstraction as applied to the kinematic theory
