· General Sites:
· Projectile Motion
o The History of Projectile Motion ... .Look at all the pages, there are some examples which clarify things we discussed. Also some very interesting history.
· Circular Motion and Satellites
o General Circular Motion Principles....explains relationships between angular and linear velocities and more
o Circular Motion Principles for Satellites....very nice explanation, showing how vectors add up in orbit!!
o Gravity and Satillites... Some beautiful animations and clear exlanation
· Structure of Matter
o Atomic Structure... A nice explanation with attractive illustrations
o Periodic Table Active Periodic Table where you can see patterns of outer electron in table (electron configurations)
o Matter: States of Matter ... Good explanation and nice animated Flash clips at "Solid-Liquid-Gas Comparison"
o Atomic Orbitals Visualizations of Electron Clouds surrounding atoms.
· Using a Vernier (to measure small distances etc.)
· Solids and Liquids
· Specific Heat
o Specific Heat (hyperphysics)
o specific heat (with examples)
· Heat and Temperature
o Gas Law Program This link has a great applet showing how the gas law looks at a molecular level.
o Molecular Model for an Ideal Gas A little harder to use, but far more exciting!
o Conduction & Convection Applet showing molecular level
o Heat Transfer: Conduction, Convection, Radiation Very good illustrations and explanation/thought problems
o Phase Change applet showing liquid/vapor phase change at molecular levelmp Temps/attractions effects
o Gasoline Engines applet showing otto cycle animation P-V curve animated cylinder
o entropy 1
o More Entropy!
o Carnot Cycle Beautiful Animation
o Sound/Doppler Police Car animation
o doppler (moving source wave visualization
o Doppler Effect (audible sound)
o Speed of Light or any other wave
