Item Picture
written by Spencer Wheaton
A set of simulations and accompanying worksheets have been developed as guided inquiry learning materials for upper division thermal physics. The content follows closely the approach taken by "An Introduction to Thermal Physics" by Daniel Schroeder.

Please note that this resource requires at least version 1.6 of Java (JRE).
