A Java applet simulation of basic pendulum motion. Source code available on main site. Foreign language versions... see more

Animates a user selected combination of normal modes on a rectangular membrane with fixed or free boundaries. Will also... see more

Animates a user selected combination of normal modes in a rectangular box.

Animates the motion of a linear array of particles joined by springs. The use can adjust the number of particles, their... see more

Demonstrates waves on a loaded string--a very light (massless) string with a number of small masses attached to it at... see more

A set of simulations exploring the basic properties and creation of both sound and electromagnetic waves.

A collection of simulations and virtual labs focusing on first-year college physics. PhET provides fun, interactive,... see more

A group of simulations on the physical and geometric nature of light along with applications of electromagnetic... see more

A complete set of simulations for a first semester college physics class.

We have created a computer program that simulates a vibrating string, and allows the user to perform experiments similar... see more

Flash simulation of a line of coupled masses, approximating the properties of a string. Tension and damping are... see more

A simulation of masses hung from a scale including gravity. Virtual lab tools, including a ruler and a stopwatch can be... see more

An interactive simulation designed to help students understand fourier series. Includes a discrete-only module and a... see more

A simulation of a Young-slit experiments where the incident particles, whether photons, atoms or electrons, are sent one... see more

MiniWaveMaker is an interactive computer simulation of a discretely weighted elastic string. It illustrates properties of... see more

Simulation of driven transverse waves on a string. The driving frequency, amplitude, and length of string can all be... see more

This is a simulation of a phased array like that used in radar or ultrasound devices. You can change the phase difference... see more

This applet is a sort of tutorial which explains the reflection and the refraction of waves by the principle of Huygens.... see more

This Java applet demonstrates the variation of elongation, velocity, acceleration, force and energy during the... see more

This simulation lets users alter a variety of variables for simple harmonic motion for two systems: a spring with a... see more

This simulation shows two pendula coupled by a spring which has a small spring constant (weak coupling). For such systems... see more

This applet provides a simulation of an oscillator damped by friction. The initial position and the coefficient of... see more
