Set of java applets for illustrating classical physics (highschool level), including gravitation, electric and magnetic... see more

From the site: "The most fascinating phenomena of celestial mechanics are revealed in the motions of three or more bodies... see more

This applet simulates the motion of an object dropped on a moving cart. The mass of the object, the velocity of the cart,... see more

A collection of Java applets with accompanying text illustrating conceptually the effect of forces upon the kinematics of... see more

This simulation gives you a floating log of which you can change the length, radius, and mass. Additional weight can be... see more

This applet allows the user to select different forces and masses. The force, in the form of a walking M&M, imparts an... see more

This Java applet demonstrates a motion on an inclined plane with constant velocity and the corresponding forces.

This applet is designed to give students an intuitive, conceptual understanding of the behavior of a damped simple... see more

A collection of simulations and other lessons on motion of objects.

This applet shows a symmetric lever with some mass pieces each of which has a weight of 1.0 N. The lever arms can be read... see more

A simulation of masses hung from a scale including gravity. Virtual lab tools, including a ruler and a stopwatch can be... 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

This Java applet simulates an air track glider setup, as it is used for experiments on constant acceleration motion. A... see more

A self-graded quiz on basic kinematics and dynamics (including rotational dynamics) from the first semester of an... see more

Physlet problems that relate to statics and Newton's Laws.

Web assignment on ballistic motion using an embedded applet by Mark Sutherland. Links to helpful resources included.

Web assignment on projectile motion using an embedded applet by Gary Richert. Assignment illustrates the effects of air... see more

Shockwave simulation of basic projectile motion. The Scientific Slugger imitates a ball being hit perfectly by a major... see more

This applet follows the rotation and translation of a wheel moving first across a frictionless surface, then on a rough... see more

User can change the length, the mass of the bob or constant of gravitational accleration, by typing values in the... see more

The motion of an object placed in a fluid is simulated. The densities of the block and fluid, and the coefficient of... see more

Shockwave simulation of linear acceleration.

This is a Java simulation of a free fall experiment. The applet calibrates its timer to the computer.

Forces add like vectors. Three forces act on the orange disk. Drag the heads of the arrows representing these forces to... see more
