Fermat Light Ray Model  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:
100
Byline:
W. Christian
Post a comment | Relations | Standards
The Fermat Light Ray model shows a light ray traveling left to right through N homogeneous regions with different refractive indicies. Because light travels in a straight line…
Stellar Blackbody Radiation Curves  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:
100
Byline:
M. Belloni
Post a comment | Relations
The Stellar Blackbody Radiation Curves model simulates the blackbody radiation curve of stars and how this leads to the observed color and luminosity of the star. If a star can be…
Hertzsprung–Russell (H-R) Diagrams  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:
100
Byline:
M. Belloni
Post a comment | Relations
The Hertzsprung–Russell (H-R) Diagrams model simulates Hertzsprung–Russell (HR or H-R) diagram for groups of stars. The diagram is a scatter plot of steller luminosity vs. stellar…
Blackbody Radiation: Frequency and Wavelength  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:
100
Byline:
J. Palop
View comments | Relations
The Blackbody Radiation: Frequency and Wavelength model simulates the blackbody radiation curves of Planck both as a function of frequency and as a function of wavelength to allow…
Young Two Slit Interference  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:
100
Byline:
J. Palop
Post a comment | Relations
The Young Two Slit Interference model simulates the interference pattern of light as it travels through two slits to a screen. This result was first described by Young who used the…
Single-Slit Diffraction  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:
100
Byline:
J. Palop
Post a comment | Relations
The Single-Slit Diffraction model simulates the diffraction pattern of light as it travels through a slit to a screen. The diffraction pattern is due to the difference in path length…
Flat Mirror JS Model  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:
100
Byline:
W. Christian, F. Esquembre, and M. Belloni
Post a comment | Relations
The Flat Mirror JS Model shows two principal rays leaving a candle of height h and striking a flat mirror. The first ray is parallel to the mirror surface and is reflected back on…
Differential X-Ray Absorption Model  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:
100
Byline:
M. Gallis
Post a comment | Relations
The Differential X-Ray Absorption Model provides a qualitative exploration of how X-rays interact with varying material properties and how this difference can produce contrast in the…
X-Ray Imaging Model  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:
100
Byline:
M. Gallis
Post a comment | Relations
The X-Ray Imaging Model simulates the basic concepts of X-Ray imaging, exploring how different aspects of both the X-Ray source as well as the sample affect the X-Ray image. The…
Lenses and Mirrors JS Models  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:
100
Byline:
S. Wheaton
Post a comment
The Lenses and Mirrors package contains a collection of JavaScript models illustrating image formation by lenses and mirrors.
