Website Detail Page

published by Andrew Duffy
This web site contains a wide range of illustrations of basic physics concepts and problems using Java applet (Physlet) illustrations. The collection includes the standard topics covered in a beginning physics course such as: motion and kinematics, forces and energy, wave motion, and thermodynamics. Each applet has a very brief text presentation on the concept or problem being considered.

Please note that this resource requires Java.
