4434Internal Combustion Engine
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=75216
This site was developed to be an addition to a senior level internal combustion engine class. The site contains text that reviews the subject matter and 21 applets that perform simple calculations. The Engine Performance applets under the Thermodynamic section are the most involved.JAVA Optics Course
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=86789
JavaOptics is an ensemble of teaching resources for Physical Optics at university level as part of physics or optics and optometry studies. Some of the resources can also be used by high school teachers or students to illustrate and broaden knowledge on some aspects of physics at this teaching level. The resources may be used either in an ordinary course as support material or as the main working tool in an online Internet course.Thermal Power Plant Micro Module
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=82625
This learning object discusses and provides animations of the basic processes and components in a thermal power plant. Cycle descriptions and animations include the Carnot cycle, the basic Rankine cycle, and advanced Rankine cycles with reheating and feedwater heating. In addition, a Rankine cycle calculator allows the user to vary several operating parameters and observe the effect on power output and cycle efficiency.BJT Base Simulation Applet
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=90614
An interactive applet, with many of the parameters user-defined.EngineSim Version 1.5b
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=78591
This software allows you to investigate how a jet engine produces thrust by changing the values of different engine parameters. Included are ramjet, turbojet, and turbofan engines. Altitude, flight speed, and engine component performance parameters are included among the many input variables provided in this engine simulation software developed by the NASA Glenn Research Center.Capacitance vs. Voltage of PN Junctions
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=90633
Applet and tutorial, with references, quiz, worksheet, and SPICE model.Compressible Aerodynamics Calculator
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=75146
This calculator is designed to replace tables (e.g. NACA 1135) in performing basic compressible aerodynamics calculations. It is designed for those learning, teaching or using compressible aerodynamics. It computes (both forward and backward) isentropic flow, normal shock and oblique shock relations. It also has a scratch pad for doing the additional arithmetic usually needed to solve compressible aero problems.Building a Transistor
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=88471
Explore how an individual Field Effect (FET) transistor is fabricated on a silicon wafer simultaneously with millions of its neighbors.Converging-Diverging Nozzle Applet
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=77879
The purpose of this applet is to simulate the operation of a converging-diverging nozzle. User input includes the nozzle area ratio, back-pressure ratio, and specific heats ratio. The applet provides impressive graphical representations of the pressure, temperature, and Mach number along the nozzle.Math Warehouse

This site has has interactive explanations and simulations of math from alegrbra to trigonometry. Just click the "interactive" tab on the top left menu and you can choose different simulations. It includes, the complete definition of parabolas, reaching beyond the ability to graph into the realm of why the graph appears as it does. It also has vivid descriptions of angles including circle angles for geometry. It also has calculators for principal nth roots, gdc, matrices, and prime factorization. It's definitely worth checking out. Quote from site: "A parabola is actually a locus of a point and a line. The point is called the focus and the line the directrix. That means that all points on a parabola are equidistant from the focus and the directrix. To change the equation and the graph of the interactive parabola below just click and drag either the point A, which is the focus, or point B, which controls the directrix." This is an interactive site that allows people to change the graph to understand why directrix and focus dictate parabolic graphs.
