Build a pattern to complete a sequence of patterns. Study a sequence of three patterns of squares in a grid and build the... see more

A Java applet that lets students create vectors on a cartesian coordinate system, and then add them graphically. Users... see more

This simulation lets users study projectile motion in a "golf" setting. The launch velocity and launch angle of the "golf... see more

Test your hearing range by listening to low-, medium-, and high-frequency sounds. Compare the relative loudness of sounds... see more

In this simulation, students learn about kinetic and potential energy by finding the best start point for a car of a... see more

Investigate how an inclined plane redirects and reduces the force pulling a brick downward, with or without friction. A... see more

This allows users to experiment with color subtraction from virtual paints which produce cyan, yellow, and magenta spots.... see more

This simulation lets users drag masses onto a grid, and plots the center of mass for the configuration. The center of... see more

This simulation lets users explore the forces due to electric charges. Users get to fire a proton into an area where it... see more

Derive an equation to calculate the frequency of an oncoming sound source and a receding sound source. Also, calculate... see more

Observe sound waves emitted from a moving vehicle. Measure the frequency of sound waves in front of and behind the... see more

Users can place a variety of masses on a horizontal rotating platform that is being accelerated by a hanging mass (which... see more

Users attempt to balance 1 to 4 masses on a see-saw-like lever system (massless beam). The number of masses, their... see more

This simulation lets users alter a variety of variables for simple harmonic motion for two systems: a spring with a... see more

A program to illustrate the appearance of fast moving objects due to special relativity. Effects modeled are: the Lorentz... see more

This is a simulation of a phased array like that used in radar or ultrasound devices. You can change the phase difference... see more

This is a simulation of an ideal virtual lens. Users can change the focal length, object size, and measure distances.... see more

There are ma­ny reasons to g­et an ultrasound. Perhaps you're pregnant, and your obstetrician wants you to have an... see more
