    The electromagnetic response of metal contains the contribution of the free charges and the bound charges,which are usually theoretically descripted by the Drude model and the Lorentz model in collage physics respectively. However,only in a certain frequency range that the prediction from both models agrees with the experimental values. In practical scientific research,one should make use of the experimental values of the dielectric constant instead of the results from the Drude model or the Lorentz model when the physical quantity is related to the response over a wide frequency range in principal. In this work,the energy level shift of a ground two-level system around a metal nanosphere is numerically demonstrated with the electric permittivity of metal from the Drude model and the experimental values. Significant difference is observed,which implies the importance of the correct usage of the electric permittivity of metal.

    Without taking the Gaussian formula as a premise,the flux of the vector field passing through the infinitesimal closed surface is calculated from the beginning,so as to establish the divergence concept and derive the formula for calculating the divergence in the space rectangular coordinate system. Giving a beautiful area division formula,it can generally calculate the volume of the space area enclosed by the surface according to the shape and size of the closed surface. It is pointed out that people often fall into misunderstanding when they calculate the formula of the divergence by calculating the flux of the vector field through the surface of the infinitesimal hexahedron.

    This paper firstly transforms the proper time (Novikov coordinate time)formula of the free-falling particle in the Schwarzschild black hole field from the form in the natural unit system to the form in the international system of units. Then,according to Newton's second law and the law of universal gravitation,the absolute time formula experienced by the free-falling particles is derived,which proves that the proper time of free-falling particle in general relativity is exactly equal to the absolute time given by Newtonian mechanics. Finally,a special case is calculated for the time that free-falling particle experience inside and outside the black hole.

    Due to the damping affected by air,when the average “period”is measured,it would decrease with the accumulated cycles. In the experiment in which zero damping is assumed,this accumulation wouldmake the systematic error increase and the random error decrease,simultaneously. Based on the motion equation and associated “period”formula of the simple pendulum in large-amplitude vibration and weak damping,the optimum accumulated times can be numerically calculated by searching the minimum uncertainty. It has been found that with different string lengths and amplitudes,usually more than 20 cycles should be measured once a time while in some cases when chronograph andphotogateis used,more than 1 cyclesare needed. If the average “period”could be measured for more times,the accumulated cycles in every time could optimally decreased effectively. With the optimal cycles,the uncertainty could get a minimum,about √2 times of the type A uncertainty.

    This paper analyses the problems existing in the measurement of the foci of thin lens,and the method of parallax elimination is used to measure the focal length of thin lens. The first method uses self-collimation and eyes instead of eyepiece system,which can change the adjustment of the image clarity into the adjustment of the lateral object and image parallax,and can greatly reduce the error caused by the focal depth. The second method uses the conjugate method to measure the focal length by the symmetry of object and image,and at the same time skillfully uses the method of eliminating parallax. The measurement results show that the measurement results obtained by the method of parallax elimination are more accurate,reaching 0.4%.

    The quality of freshmen in college physics study is often evaluated with scores. With the development of deeper learning,another evaluation method which is based on the SOLO (Structure of the Observed Learning Outcome)taxonomy,divided students’thinking ability in the process of solving problems into five levels. The deeper learning theory divides these five levels into two levels:deep and shallow.Based on the above theory,this study classifies the thinking ability of freshmen when a mechanical problem is solved,evaluates the depth of their learning,and compares the above two evaluation methods and has found that the latter is more scientific,more observable and more suitable for teachers to evaluate the study of college physics for deeper learning.
