Physlets are small scriptable java applets meant to be used for educational illustrations and simulations.  There are applets covering physics topics from mechanics and E&M through quantum physics and relativity.  There are also a wide range of tools for input and display of information.  Examples of the educational use of Physlets are available from users around the world.

Please note that this resource requires at least version 1.1 of Java.
