4434PhET - Physics Education Technology at the University of Colorado
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=80654
A collection of simulations and virtual labs focusing on first-year college physics. An interview with the award winning author can be found in About us at Phet VideoPhET provides fun, interactive, research-based simulations of physical phenomena for free. We believe that our research-based approach- incorporating findings from prior research and our own testing- enables students to make connections between real-life phenomena and the underlying science, deepening their understanding and appreciation of the physical world. To help students visually comprehend concepts, PhET simulations animate what is invisible to the eye through the use of graphics and intuitive controls such as click-and-drag manipulation, sliders and radio buttons. In order to further encourage quantitative exploration, the simulations also offer measurement instruments including rulers, stop-watches, voltmeters and thermometers. As the user manipulates these interactive tools, responses are immediately animated thus effectively illustrating cause-and-effect relationships as well as multiple linked representations (motion of the objects, graphs, number readouts, etc.) PhET Interactive Simulations, University of Colorado, http://phet.colorado.eduApplets for quantum mechanics
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=74994
This set of applets features illustrations of quantum mechanics through interactive animations in the following domains : Young interference fringes - wavepacket propagation - linear superposition of eigenstates (including coherent states of the harmonic oscillator) - nuclear magnetic resonance.Circuit Construction Kit (DC only)
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=82770
A java application that functions as simple DC circuit simulator. Available components are batteries, bulbs, swithches, and connecting wire. Component values can be varied by the user. Meters to measure voltage and current are available..Tracker Video Analysis
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=231924
A Java program that performs quantitative analysis of motion. Data is collected using frame-by-frame analysis of video clips (Quicktime movies in this case). Resulting data is displayed both graphically and in table form.Vector Fields Simulation
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=75572
This applet demonstrates various properties of vector fields. You can select from a number of vector fields and see how particles move in the field if it is treated as either a velocity or a force field. This helps you visualize the field. Also you can see the values of the divergence and curl of the field. [From Author's Description]Forces
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=90591
Text, images, and applet for learning about forces. A link is provided for learning how to add and subtract vectors.Fermats 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.Vector Composition
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=90197
This Macromedia ShockWave is an adding machine for vectors. The vectors to be added can be adjusted by clicking and dragging. The applet displays the polar and rectangular coordinates for the two vectors to be added and for their resultant. The head to tail vector addition principle can be verified graphically.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.The Vernier Caliper
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=89529
Applet and tutorial showing how to use the Vernier caliper.
