Inertial Frames, Newtonian Mechanics and Why the Laws are the Same in the Train and on the Platform
This web page describes inertial and non-inertial frames of reference, the latter being frames where Newton's laws do not hold. The text explains "fictitious forces", the centrifugal force and the Coriolis force, that...
Physics Classroom: Projectile Motion
Created by Tom Henderson of Physics Classroom.com, this seven-part resource is an excellent introduction to the characteristics of projectile motion and how projectiles are described numerically. Through in-depth...
The Equivalence Principle: True or False?
This site discusses the equivalence principle, which states that an acceleration effect (inertia) and a gravitational one (attraction between two gravitational masses) are equivalent. The site demonstrates an experiment...
Frames of Reference
Authored and curated by David P. Stern, this is a lesson plan for teaching frames of reference. It is linked to text material on reference frames, aberration of light, and a very short introduction to the foundations of...
Authored and curated by David P. Stern, this series of web pages, part of "From Stargazers to Starships," describes Newton's three laws of motion and the two concepts on which they are based, force and inertia. The...
