Nuclear reactor and power plant simulation Introduction This is not a lesson like the others in Radioactivity and Atomic Physics Explained but it fits in well with the lesson on nuclear power. It is a very sophisticated simulation of a pressurised water reactor (PWR), which is the most common type of nuclear power reactor in the US but not in Europe, though the principles are very similar. Using the tour There is a comprehensive tour which goes through the workings of the reactor, starting from a consumer of electrical energy and working backwards to the reactor core itself. You can restart the tour at any time using the button at the top left of the screen. Hint numbers Each part of the simulation has a hint number that you can click to see a description of its function. The skill test Once you're familiar with how to use the reactor you can see whether you can control the reactor so that the power output matches the demand from the city.

The Physics Classroom OSP Simulations Overview » home » Simulations » Overview Overview Search for OSP Simulations or browse by topic Applications There are three ways to distribute and run Java programs. Java Applications Java Web Start Java Applets Each distribution method is slightly different and has its advantages and disadvantages. Other websites or curriculum developers may adopt a different distribution mechanism and additional pages in this section show how Open Source Physics programs can be distributed as applets and using Web Start. A classical-physics model of helium consisting of two electrons in a 1/r potential well and interacting through a 1/r potential. Example: Download the classical helium simulation and run the mech_helium.jar file. Jar Files Ready to run OSP models are packaged in a Java archive (jar) file such as osp_demo.jar of osp_guide.jar. Users may also execute a jar file from within a console (terminal) although it is unlikely that students will want to deal with the complexities of command-line syntax.

View the latest Image of the Day Amusement Park Physics -- Design a Roller Coaster Design a Roller Coaster Try your hand at designing your own roller coaster. You will be building a conceptual coaster using the physics concepts that are used to design real coasters. You won't need to compute any formulas. You will decide the following - the height of the first hill, the shape of the first hill, the exit path, the height of the second hill, and the loop. When you're done, your coaster will need to pass an inspection for both safety and fun. Here we go! First you need to determine the height of the first hill. Note: We'll assume that your coaster is a single-car coaster running on a frictionless track.

Learn The History Of Physics In 4 Minutes Aristotle was wrong. He claimed that heavier items fell faster than lighter items. Had he actually tested the theory, using a high-tech tool as sophisticated as a ladder, a ledge, or a cliff, he’d have immediately realized that it couldn’t possibly be true. Because Galileo did test the theory, and he found that balls of various mass fell at the exact same rate. Well, at least that’s what happened according to this fantastic animation directed by Åsa Lucande for BBC Science. [Hat tip: neatorama]
