Abstract: Physics students routinely struggle to understand the Coriolis force and the centrifugal force. While investigating students’ prior knowledge resources in these domains, we observed the use of an intuitive element regarding the “bulging” demonstrated by rotating bodies. This element exhibits similar characteristics to a previously described class of intuitive knowledge resources for making sense of physics phenomena: phenomenological primitives (pprims). We document the attributes of the “bulging” resource and compare them to the expected traits of p-prims.
