View Resource Physics Classroom: Newton's Law of Universal Gravitation

Created by Tom Henderson of Physics Classroom.com, this resource features well-organized text explanations alongside algebraic equations and animations to help users form a better understanding of gravitational interactions. Multiple short problems and tables are employed to illustrate the universal nature of gravitational attraction. The lesson ends with a series of ten self correcting short...

View Resource Roller Coasters and Amusement Park Physics

Created by Tom Henderson of Physics Classroom.com, this resource provides explanations and animations that explore the physics of roller coasters. It is designed as a tutorial for either teacher or learner to be used in conjunction with a unit on amusement park physics. The author uses free-body diagrams and detailed discussion to show how the force of gravity and the normal force act upon the...

View Resource 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 explanations and animations, it explores vertical acceleration and explains why there are no horizontal forces acting upon projectiles, a common student misconception. The last two...

View Resource Physics Classroom: Circular Motion

This resource guides the user through characteristics of circular motion. The same concepts and principles used to describe the motion of an object can also be used to describe and explain the motion of objects in circular pathways. This tutorial is broken into five sections addressing: the mechanics of circular motion, centripetal force, algebraic and trigonometric problems and solutions,...

View Resource The Anatomy of the Eye

Created by Tom Henderson of the Physics Classroom, this item is devoted to the physics of sight, the author explores how the human eye is able to refract light to produce a focused image. Included are explanations of how the cornea acts as a double convex lens and how the brain converts nerve impulses from incoming light to inverted images on the retina. The inclusion of lens and magnification...
