View Resource OSP Quantum Mechanics: Single Measurments of Spin States Worksheet

This set of tutorial worksheets, based on the OSP Quantum Mechanics Simulations, help students explore the measurement of quantum spins. The tutorial starts with an introduction of the physics of spins, and then presents the results of a single measurement on pure, mixed, and superposition states.

View Resource Quantum Mechanics (QM) Measurement Package

This set of tutorial worksheets, based on the OSP Quantum Mechanics Simulations, help students explore the effects of position, momentum, and energy measurements on quantum state wavepackets. The probabilistic change in the wavefunction upon measurements and the time propagation of the states are illustrated. Similar worksheets are available for measurements of single and superpositions of energy...

View Resource Open Source Physics: Quantum Mechanical Measurement

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 that demonstrate the results of measurement of energy, position, and momentum on states in potential wells (square well, harmonic oscillator, asymmetric well, etc). Eigenstates,...

View Resource Open Source Physics: Quantum Spins

OSP Spins is an interactive computer program that simulates Stern-Gerlach-type measurements on spin-1/2 and spin-1 particles. This package provides the user with a sequence of tutorials and exercises to help them explore the physics of quantum spin. Fundamental issues such as incompatible observables, eigenstate expansions, interference, and quantum dynamics are included.

View Resource Teaching About Energy

This AAPT/PTRA manual contains background references and activities to help teachers and students with the many concepts involved in understanding Energy. Sample student activities from the full print manual are available here. The complete manual includes sections on basic concepts in energy, different forms and conversion of energy, and the social problems involved with energy. Appendices for...
