Abstract

It has been conducted a research to identify and to analyze the kinds of students? misconceptions on the dimensions of other influences on the motion. The instrument consists of 19 of 30 items of the FCI was given to students of Physics Education Department, Faculty of Teacher Training and Education, Sriwijaya University. In addition, data were also collected through learning observation. The result was the mean score was 18.0%, indicated that the respondents had serious misconceptions. Based on the analysis found ten kinds of misconceptions experienced by the respondents, i.e. 1)hevier objects fall faster (79,45%), 2) mass makes thing stop (75,34%), 3) gravity increases as objects fall (47,95%), 4) motion when force overcomes resistance (47,26%), 5) resistance opposes force/impetus (26,03%), 6) grafity acts after impetus wears down (21,92%), 7) existence of centriugal force (18,15%), 8) air pressure-assisted grafity (16,44%), 9) obstacles exert no force (10,37%), and 10) grafity intrinsic to mass (4,79%). It is recommended to conduct future research to find the causes of the misconceptions and to apply learning strategies based on conceptual changes to remediate the misconceptions
