Abstract

Daniel F. Styer1 recently discussed physics problems where several different algebraic results are presented, and the task is to identify the correct result through reasoning based on a general understanding of physics principles. Here is a related, but more general, problem. A graph with several quite disparate captions is presented (Fig. 1). The task is to find the only caption that could be correct.
