Make sure to scan the mouse over the categories at the top of the author's web page, which pops up even more java applets. The number of applets at this site is overwhelming, which prompted upgrade in rating.

A lot of good ideas. These applets span manytopics, from optics and quantum physics tomechanics and astronomy. Some work better thanothers, but all seem to be useful to some extent.Explanations could be a little clearer. Aimedat introductory physics students and educators.

Technical Remarks:

All the applets I tried (most of them) worked fine.
