This website consists of a collection of short videos designed for computer analysis in introductory physics classrooms.  The videos are 20-40 frames in length and each depict a physical process commonly discussed in beginning courses.  Positions of objects in the video frame can be viewed in step motion or real-time.  Position and time data may be measured and collected by using video-analysis software,  or in some cases using a Flash-based interface available on this web site. These materials can be used for data analysis, modeling, and student-centered investigations.

SEE RELATED ITEMS ON THIS PAGE for a link to download free Tracker video analysis software.  Tracker allows students to not only analyze the video in slow-motion, but also to overlay the videos with dynamical models to see how well the model matches the real world.

Please note that this resource requires Quicktime.

Topic: Kinematics: The Physics of Motion
Unit Title: Graphing

This website contains a collection of short videos depicting physical processes commonly discussed in beginning courses.  Positions of objects in the video frame can be viewed in step motion or real-time, and then mapped onto video analysis software, allowing for more accurate measurement and graphing.
