4434Fermats principle(Find the fastest Path)
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=74728
Fermat's principle states that: The path of a ray of light between two points is the path that minimizes the travel time. The same principle can be applied to different situations. This java applet give you an example of such application.Fourier Series Simulation
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=75561
A general purpose Fourier analysis/synthesis application with a graphical interface. In analysis mode, the user can select from a list of standard functions, select the truncation level for the Fourier series, and observe the amplitudes, phases, and fit of the resulting series. In synthesis mode, the user can adjust amplitudes and phases and observe the graphical result.7Stones.com Education Graphics
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=89885
A site devoted to graphical presentations on many subjects, most notably physics, mathematics, and biology. Many shockwave applets available.Challenges for Electronics
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=77291
Challenges for Electronics is a suite of seven educational programs for electricity, electronics and math. The titles of the seven programs are Basic Circuits Challenge, DC Circuits Challenge, AC Circuits Challenge, Trigonometry Challenge, Digital Challenge, Solid State Challenge and Power Supply Challenge. Each program contains several interactive activities. Activities for both circuit analysis and troubleshooting are included. The programs grade and correct all student work immediately. Student scores can be stored on diskettes or printed. The material is suitable for use as a supplement to classroom or tutorial instruction. The programs can also be used as a refresher course for employees who have already had basic electrical or electronics training. The programs run for ten executions of any time length. After ten executions, the programs become limited capability demos.PADs: Physics Applets for Drawing
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=82992
The PADs are a set of Java applets that allow students to respond to questions on the web by drawing a diagram or making a graph. These can then be automatically evaluated and (optionally) feedback can be provided. A range of parameters allow users to change appearance, functionality and what constitutes correct. The applets and a collection of exercises are available on the website.Print Free Graph Paper
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=84705
Print Cartesian, engineering, polar, isometric, hexagonal, probability, Smith chart and logarithmic graph paper free from your computer.The Role of Rotation in Rigid and Deformable Body Mechanics
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=82674
Objects are drawn in the first quadrant of body axes x,y,z. Positions are described in terms of both body angles and Euler angles. For simplicity, equal body angle rotations are made. Rotation direction cosine arrays are calculated and three two-dimensional projections are made.Vector Land
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=91054
This is the beginning of an online course to get to grips with 3D vectors for anyone who wants to learn. Most of the material is about UK A-level difficulty, so if you're studying a maths course involving vectors I hope working through it won't harm your grades:) Also if you're interested in related topics, such as 3D graphics programming or Newtonian mechanics, I hope you'll find something useful or interesting.A Chase II
