Website Detail Page

written by Kyle Forinash
This is a collection of interactive Java applets and tutorial materials on thermodynamics.  Each page contains a simulation and a brief explanation of the system. Most simulations also include context-rich questions to guide the user to interpret the data provided in the applet and draw conclusions.  Pressure, pistons, Brownian motion, the Maxwell-Boltzmann distribution, diatomic models, blackbody radiation, and engine cycles are covered.
