In this activity from the AAPT/PTRA manual "Role of the Laboratory in Teaching Introductory Physics", students are asked to find the condition for maximum power transfer from a power supply to a load resistor. By...
This Physlet--one of many Java applets on physics phenomena--shows the waves produced by a moving object whose speed is controlled by the user. The circular waves radiate out, and the observed change in wavelength when...
This site, from the University of Toronto, provides an overview of chaos theory and concisely explains the characteristics of chaotic systems. The bifurcation of a rabbit population, with the transition to chaos, is...
This set of quantum mechanics java applets, part of the Open Source Physics project, provides simulations that demonstrate the effect of measurement on the time-dependence of quantum states. Exercises are available...
