The Open Source Physics website will be unavailable Friday evening through Saturday afternoon as electrical work occurs in the American Center of Physics server room. Down time will begin at 6PM Eastern Time on Friday. Service is expected to resume by 6PM on Saturday, July 30.
Video Analysis with Tracker: TPT Package contains several video analysis and modeling experiments from introductory physics as described in "Innovative Uses of Video Analysis" The Physics Teacher, 2009. It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive containing the Tracker video analysis application, movies, models and instructionsa which can be modified by the user. Tracker, a video analysis program with dynamical modeling, is an Open Source Physics tool.
