Rotational-vibrational coupling
In molecular physics it is recognized that there is a coupling of rotational and vibrational energy-levels. In molecular physics rotational-vibrational coupling is also called rovibronic coupling and Coriolis coupling. The physics of actual diatomic molecules is more complicated than the example in this animation, but because of its simplicity the animation is useful for illustrating the basic principles.

Physics
The current online Andes Physics course is intended to be used with most physics textbooks. It supplements the textbook by providing problems for students to solve with the aid of Andes, an intelligent tutoring system developed at the University of Pittsburgh and the United States Naval Academy with funding from the Cognitive Science program of the Office of Naval Research. Students solve typical textbook problems just as they would with pencil and paper, by entering vectors, coordinate systems,

Guitar Building
In this class, students learn about physics principles by examining the physics responsible for producing music with electronic stringed instruments, while building, testing, and playing their own electric guitar. Students will design their own Guitar bodies, construct their own pick-ups, assemble their own guitars, tune them using a chromatic tuner, and use them to play a simple song. While the instructions here give enough detail that an independent learner could construct their own guitar, pl

"Everything Was Lively": David Hickman Describes the Prosperity Late Nineteenth-Century Railroads Br
The availability of rail connections often determined whether a western community would survive or die. The rails fostered prosperity by bringing both goods and people. This trade, and the local service industries that sprouted up to capitalize on the movement of people and goods, drove many local economies. Here, David Hickman talked about the boom years that followed the arrival of the railroad in the Latah County, Idaho town of Genesee in the 1880s.

"He'll Come Home in a Box": The Spanish Influenza of 1918 Comes to Montana
In 1918 and 1919, the Spanish influenza killed 550,000 people in the United States and 20 to 40 million worldwide. In a 1982 interview with Laurie Mercier, Loretta Jarussi of Bearcreek, Montana, described how people would pass through that tiny town seemingly healthy, only to be reported dead two days later. Her father went undiagnosed for many weeks and had plans to go to a nearby hot springs to rest. She believed that her father's death was averted only because the son of the local doctor was
