View Resource 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 enable Newton's laws to describe motion in a non-inertial frame. An animation shows the motion of a ball rolling on a merry-go-round as seen both from the merry-go-round and from...

View Resource Physclips

It's certainly not impossible to learn about Newton's laws, momentum and other key principles of physics without multimedia learning activities, but it's a bit more fun to have such resources on hand. With funding from The Australian Learning and Teaching Council, Professor Joe Wolfe of The University of New South Wales has created this rather remarkable set of physics teaching resources....

View Resource Vector Calculus

This is a series of lectures, authored by Chris Tisdell of the University of New South Wales, for MATH2111 "Higher Several Variable Calculus" and "Vector Calculus", which is a 2nd-year mathematics subject taught at UNSW, Sydney. This playlist provides a shapshot of some lectures presented in Session 1, 2009. These lectures focus on presenting vector calculus in an applied and engineering context,...

View Resource Einstein Light: Galilean Relativity and Newtonian Mechanics

This page of the Einstein Light site presents the concept of an inertial reference frame, along with explanations of Newton's three laws. The site includes a video depicting the principle and is produced at the University of New South Wales.

View Resource Einstein Light

This web site is a basic, non-mathematical introduction to relativity. It covers concepts from Galileo, Newton, and Maxwell through Einstein and special relativity. The site also mentions modern topics such as the relations between gravity and quantum mechanics. The main resource is a series of Flash media files with narration and animations. Thirty detailed pages that go into specifics are...
