Applying Ohm's Law to Semiconductors
This project allows students to apply concepts of momentum conservation and energy conservation from classical physics. However, here they are not enough: they must be combined with modern physics, using concepts from relativity and particle physics as well as modern units that put energy, mass, and momentum in terms of MeV and GeV. Most important, students will learn about both fundamental and cutting-edge physics by actually doing what physicists do.
Inquiring Minds: Fermilab
This sie features an introduction to elementary particles and forces in our universe, physics questions answered by Fermilab scientists, an interactive timeline illustrating the history of high-energy physics, links to other high energy physics sites, and more.
Introduction to Modern Physics
The course covers principles and concepts of Special and General Relativity; origins of Quantum Mechanics; quantum structure of atoms, molecules, solids; applications to lasers and microelectronics; nuclear and particle physics; and cosmology.
Using their knowledge of physics, students will build a wind chime. Mathematical computations will be done to determine the length of the pipes.
Calculus-Based Physics is an introductory physics textbook designed for use in the two-semester introductory physics course typically taken by science and engineering students.
Physics Test I for Grade 10
A set of 30 multiple choice questions is Physics from 10th standard syllabus (India). The quiz covers a wide range of topics, such as force, pressure, gravity and heat.
Electric Field Hockey
Play hockey with electric charges. Place charges on the ice, then hit start to try to get the puck in the goal. View the electric field. Trace the puck's motion. Make the game harder by placing walls in front of the goal. This is a clone of the popular simulation of the same name marketed by Physics ...
Optical Quantum Control
Explore an active area of research in optical physics: producing designer pulse shapes to achieve specific purposes, such as breaking apart a molecule. Carefully create the perfect shaped pulse to break apart a molecule by individually manipulating the colors of light that make up a pulse.
Resistance in a Wire
Learn about the physics of resistance in a wire. Change its resistivity, length, and area to see how they affect the wire's resistance. The sizes of the symbols in the equation change along with the diagram of a wire.
Generate electricity with a bar magnet! Discover the physics behind the phenomena by exploring magnets and how you can use them to make a bulb light.
Global Studies Seminar Series | Professor Robyn Eckersley and Dr Martin Mulligan
The new politics of climate change: building political momentum and community support for adequate action on climate change. In regard to responding to the enormous challenges of climate change, the public debate in Australia has been frustratingly narrow and yet polarising. The Rudd/Gillard governments have put nearly all their emphasis on the twice-defeated Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) and an increased roll-out renewable energy alternatives, while the Abbott-led opposition has given new oxy
AP Physics B II
This course is divided into two semesters and is designed to acquaint you with topics in classical and modern physics. The first semester discusses topics in Newtonian mechanics including: kinematics, laws of motion, work and energy, systems of particles, momentum, circular motion, oscillations, and gravitation. The first semester concludes with topics in fluid mechanics, thermal physics, and kinetic theory. The second semester discusses the topics of electricity and magnetism, waves and optics,
Relevant material from MIT's introductory courses to support students as they study and educators as they teach the AP Physics curriculum.
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

The College of Optical Sciences: Past, Present, and Future
The College of Optical Sciences at the University of Arizona is a great place to do research and to study and learn optics and photonics. This talk gives a short history of the Optical Sciences Center, now the College of Optical Sciences, describing some of the decisions and actions that have shaped the college. The current status of the college and future plans of the college will be presented. This presentation was given by Dr. Jim Wyant, Dean of the University of Arizona's College of Optic
