4434Physics Illuminations
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=82187
A collection of Java applets with accompanying text designed to help students understand concepts in introductory mechanics. Topics include Vectors, 1D Kinematics, 2D Kinematics, Dynamics (Forces), and Work and Energy (under construction). The items are interactive, and provide immediate feedback and a running score, making them suitable for student self-study. A means of recording scores for a homework grade is available from the author.HyperPhysics Mechanics
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=80526
This is a hyper-linked exploration of topics in classical mechanics.1-D Kinematics
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=90992
This site contains an extensive set of notes on basic topics in physics. There are extensive illustrations and animations along with the text. Also included are self-quizzes, and shockwave quizzes and tutorials. Discusses the use of diagrams and graphs.Video Analysis on the Web
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=87999
Select any Video Clip and step through it frame by frame. Pick an object and record its x- and its y-coordinate in each frame. Create a table giving the position of the object as a function of time. Copy your table into a spreadsheet for further analysisConservation of Energy
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=90339
Applet for demonstrating conservation of energy. Extensive explanatory text included.Describing Motion with Position vs. Time Graphs
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=77659
Introduces position vs. time graphs. Discusses what their shape and slope mean, and how to determine slope. Includes diagrams, definitions, interactive exercises, and links to animatons.Electricity Generation
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=90484
A tutorial on basic electromagnetism, with an applet demonstrating Ohm's Law.Free Fall and the Acceleration of Gravity
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=77665
Describes what free fall and the acceleration of gravity are. (The acceleration due to gravity is approximated in this site as 10 m/s/s.) Shows how to represent free fall by graphs. Presents free fall equations of motion. Stresses that all objects accelerate at the same rate. Includes diagrams and definitions.Introductory Physics Lab e-Manual
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=84293
An electronic laboratory manual for introductory physics consisting of videos (on principles and laboratory procedure) in streaming Windows media format, a pdf file of the PowerPoint slides upon which the lectures are based, and an Excel spreadsheet for laboratory data. Question pools aligned with learning objectives are available from the author for instructors using Blackboard.Newton's Laws
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=90993
This is a tutorial about Newton's Laws. The following topics are included:Lesson 1 - Newton's First Law of MotionLesson 2 - Force and Its RepresentationLesson 3 - Newton's Second Law of MotionLesson 4 - Newton's Third Law of Motion
