The researchers present a simple experimental activity to measure the sound intensity level using an Android-based smartphone to prove the inverse square law and analyze the dependence of the sound intensity to the sound source frequency. The type of this study was quantitative research by conducting level of intensity experiment using a pair of smartphones with one smartphone functioning as the sound source using a tone generator free application (app) and the other smartphone functioning as the detector installed with Physics Toolbox sound meter application to measure the arriving sound intensity level. The smartphone functioning as the sound source was placed at a certain place labeled as the origin point (0.0), while the other smartphone as the detector was placed at various distances on the x-axis. In this study, the frequencies of the tone generator used were 500 Hz, 1000 Hz, and 2000 Hz. Then, the sound intensity level versus distance was analyzed to determine the compatibility between the experimental results using a smartphone and the prevailing theory, namely the inverse square model. The sound intensity level detected by the smartphone from 2,000 Hz resulted in the graph with smaller slope after passing 0.3 meters. The results follow the theorem of which the sound intensity level at the detector depends on the distance between the source and the detector based on the inverse square law. When the frequency of a source was changed (500 Hz, 1000 Hz and 2000), the sound intensity also changed. Higher frequency leads to a larger sound intensity. The experiment can thus be used to assist high school students and physics undergraduates in understanding the inverse square law of sound or to study environmental noise with a simple and low-cost experiment.

During the production of batik cual, thick-colored wastewater is produced. Unfortunately, the wastewater could damage the environment if it is disposed of without specific processing. The Fenton method is an advanced oxidation process (AOPs) that can degrade organic dyes found in liquid waste. In this research, the researchers studied the Fenton mechanism's application to the batik cual wastewater treatment. The Fenton's reagent used was H2O2 with FeSO4.7H2O. Some of the experimental wastewater treatment parameters were the values of biological oxygen demand (BOD), chemical oxygen demand (COD), the degradation efficiency of difficult to decompose organic materials, and the color degradation efficiency in batik cual wastewater. The results show that the Fenton mechanism’s efficiency of removing color from batik cual wastewater is up to 97.8%, COD and BOD removal efficiencies are 76.3% and 75.2%, and the degradation efficiency of difficult to decompose organic matter is 76.8%. Also, the researchers found that the higher amounts of FeSO4.7H2O increase the removal parameters effectiveness. Therefore, the Fenton mechanism can effectively improve the quality of wastewater in batik cual production.

The present study focuses on the approach of the concept of light by primary school students. The study explores how a teaching procedure founded on using the metaphor that light travels as a wave reflects on the concept of light as a distinct natural entity. The experimental method was used for the research. One hundred and fifty-two children aged between 7 to 8 years old (average age 7.59) from 9 different primary school classes in Colorado, USA, participated in the research. An experimental and control group was delineated. Following a socio-cognitive perspective, the experimental group took part in a teaching procedure based on using the metaphor that light travels as a wave. Following an empiricist perspective, the control group took part in a teaching procedure based on a description of the phenomenon without using a metaphor. Data had been collected through pre and post-test, which results were analyzed using the Mann-Whitney test. The quantitative analysis showed an essential difference between the two groups. The experimental group pupils achieve higher learning outcomes as they better understand light as a distinct entity. It is argued that using a metaphor allows children to make connections with their everyday life, wonder about, and conceptualize light in a more efficient and meaningful way. The study informs everyday educational practice by providing a quality improvement element for learning and teaching about the primary classroom light

This research was exploratory research with qualitative and quantitative approaches. The populations of this study were eleventh-grade students of SMAN 6 Palu. The respondents were chosen based on the lowest posttest results. The research instruments were OSRT treatment, pretest, posttest, and diagnostic test. The data were analyzed by comparing the pretest results, the posttest, and the gain score to determine the improvement after the remediation. Respondent A obtained 0.71 within the high category, respondent B obtained 0.69 within the high category, respondent C obtained 0.85 within the high category, respondent D obtained 0.84 within the high category, and respondent E obtained 0.46 within the moderate category. It can be concluded that internal and external factors caused difficulties. The internal factors were students' weak basic knowledge and weak material prerequisites, while the external factors were the teacher's learning methods that did not attract students' attention. The OSRT can overcome the difficulty in understanding Newton's law's concept to improve their ability to understand physics concepts.

Gravity measurement has been conducted in South Lampung area to study the characteristics of the distribution of bedrock and igneous rocks, especially those that can be utilized for development in the National Strategic Area of the Sunda Strait. This study uses a 2D qualitative modeling method and utilizing spectrum analysis of complete Bouguer anomaly data. Based on the result of modeling of residual gravity anomaly, it was found that the intrusion pattern on Sulan granitoid pluton and surrounding plutons showed a significant intrusion of the body and scattered in some Tarahan area. 2D qualitative modeling shows Paleozoic metamorphic rocks are responsible as bedding rocks, and the spread was identified scattered throughout the study area, although it cannot be ascertained whether the bedrock in the Bakauheni area is precisely the same rock as the bedrock in Tarahan area. Meanwhile, Quaternary volcanic rocks are still dominated by tuffaceous sandstone and breccia. This method also confirms that andesite lava is commonly found as a product of the eruption of Mount Rajabasa and Pre-Rajabasa in the Bakauheni region. Nevertheless, some potential of basaltic andesite rocks can be obtained in monogenetic volcanic zones exposed around the foot of Mount Rajabasa.

The use of mobile phones for learning is still becoming a debate in Indonesia. Many schools forbid their students to bring mobile phones to school. This study was aimed to describe the perceptions of physics teachers in Lampung Province regarding the use of mobile phones to study physics. Data was collected from 39 physics teachers from various districts in Lampung Province. The Likert scale with a range of 1 to 5 was used. Descriptive quantitative data analysis was carried out. The results showed that most teachers agree /strongly agree: (1) to utilize mobile phones in learning physics both inside and outside of the classroom, (2) the tendency of students to use mobile phones make the physics learning process efficient. It could strengthen and improve the quality of the learning process. Almost all physics teachers agree /strongly agree with mobile phones usage, because: (1) it could turn the learning process from teacher-centered into student-centered and from content-oriented learning to process-oriented learning, (2) it could improve efficiency and productivity in the learning process. However, they agreed that the use of mobile phones by students could not replace the teacher's role, so physics teachers needed a more sophisticated concept of cellular learning to be implemented
