Static Physical Model
Static physical model is a scaled down model of a system which does not change with time. An architect before constructing a building makes a scaled down model of the building, which reflects all it rooms, outer design and other important features. This is an example of static physical model. Similarly for conducting trials in water, we make small water tanks, which are replica of sea, and fire small scaled down shells in them. This tank can be treated as a static physical model of ocean.

In this model the measurements are taken to represent attributes of the system being study under one set of equilibrium condition. In this case, the measurement do not translate directly into system attribute values. Well known laws of similitude are used to convert measurement on the scale model to the values that will occur in the real system. Scientists have used this model in which spheres represent atoms and rods or specially shaped sheet of metal connect the spheres to represent atomic bonds.

They are sometimes said to be ionic models, a term meaning “look alike”. Sometimes this model is used as a means of solving equation with particular boundary conditions.
