Physics Flash Animations

Physics Flash Animations
We have been increasingly using Flash animations for illustrating Physics content. This page provides access to those animations which may be of general interest. The animations will appear in a separate window. The animations are sorted by category, and the file size of each animation is included in the listing. Also included is the minimum version of the Flash player that is required; the player is available free from The categories are: In addition, I have prepared a small tutorial in using Flash to do Physics animations. LInks to versions of these animations in other languages, other links, and license information appear towards the bottom of this page. The Animations There are 99 animations listed below. Other Languages and Links These animations have been translated into Catalan, Spanish and Basque: En aquest enllaç podeu trobar la versió al català de les animacions Flash de Física. Many animations have been translated into Greek by Vangelis Koltsakis.

Capacitor uF - nF - pF Conversion Chart Capacitors and Resistors for Tube Electronics - JustRadios Capacitor uF - nF - pF Conversion Chart When reading schematics, repairing radios and buying capacitors, you often must convert between uF, nF and pF. Paper and electrolytic capacitors are usually expressed in terms of uF (microfarads). Short forms for micro farad includeuF, mfd, MFD, MF and UF. Mica capacitors are usually expressed in terms of pF (micromicrofarads) (picofarads). Charges and Fields - Electric Charges, Electric Field, Electric Potential Topics Electric Field Electrostatics Equipotential Electrostatic Potential Electric Charges Voltage Description Arrange positive and negative charges in space and view the resulting electric field and electrostatic potential. Plot equipotential lines and discover their relationship to the electric field.

We're More than Stardust — We're Made of the Big Bang Itself Transcript Anna Frebel: The work of stellar archaeology really goes to the heart of the "we are stardust" and "we are children of the stars" statement. You’ve probably heard it all but what does it actually mean? We are mostly made all humans and all life forms that we know of are made mostly of carbon and a bunch of other elements but in much lesser quantities. Where does this carbon come from?

Applets Applets Light Reflection Plane Mirror Image QM Experiments for Undergraduates Textbook My book is titled Quantum Mechanics: Theory and Experiment, and is written for a junior/senior level quantum mechanics class. It is unique in that it describes not only quantum theory, but also presents laboratories that explore truly modern aspects of quantum mechanics. The book begins the presentation of quantum mechanics using photon polarization as a prototypical two-dimensional quantum system. It also has chapters describing quantum measurement, entanglement, quantum field theory and quantum information. Monkey teeth hint at a miraculous marine migration to North America Scientists have long thought that monkeys first ventured from South America into North America no earlier than about 4 million years ago, when the two continents merged. But seven teeth unearthed in Panama may change that story. These monkey teeth were discovered encased in 21-million-year-old rocks. This suggests that the primates accomplished the impossible: they crossed the more than 100 miles of ocean that separated South America from North America at the time.

The Best Tools and Apps for Flipped Learning Classroom July 25, 2014 Following the posting of "Managing iPad Videos in Schools" somebody emailed me asking about some suggestions for tools and apps to create instructional videos to use in a flipped learning setting. In fact, over the last couple of years I have reviewed several web tools and iPad apps that can be used in flipped classroom but the ones I am featuring below are among the best out there. 1- Educlipper Maxwell's equations Quote So if Coulombs law works best for you, then use coulomb's law - there's no need to re-invent the wheel. As far as the original problem goes it is solved, but it uncovered great many things for me, so what is left now is curiosity because this solution implies Coulomb's and Biot-Savart law tell different and more complete story than Maxwell's equations and yet they are supposed to talk about the same E and B fields. There are two kinds of fields, "radial" like gravity and electric fields, and we have "rotational", like vortexes, whirlpools or magnetic fields.
