This page from Hyperphysics illustrates the relationship between tension, pressure, and radius in a balloon. The same ideas are then applied to the walls of spherical and cylindrical containers. Several links provide...
This site from HyperPhysics provides a description of Pascal's Principle, which explains how pressure is transmitted in an enclosed fluid. Drawings and sample calculations are provided. Examples illustrating the...
This interactive resource from the physics department at Boston University illustrates Coulomb's law. The simulation allows the user to graph the dependence of the Coulomb force on the distance between charges.
This item is a lesson plan for beginning high school physics and/or physical science. Students investigate energy transfer by placing a ping-pong ball on top of a racquetball and dropping them together. Upon impact,...
This video demonstrates conservation of angular momentum. When a person on a rotatable platform (initially at rest) tilts the axis of a rotating bicycle wheel, conservation of angular momentum results in spinning of the...
