Discribe the advantage and limitation of the three tyeps of models?

  • 6th grade science -

    Do you need to describe specific models or generic types?

    One group is as

    Conceptual (=thought experiments)
    Mathematical (includes computer models)
    Physical (e.g. a mechanical model of the solar system like an orrery)

    Physicist Georg William de Tunzelmann distingushed in 1910 three "models“ of the universe:

    the mechanical,

    the molecular and

    the mental.

    Another grouping is as:

    iconic
    analogue
    symbolic.
