View Resource Rutherford Scattering

How did Rutherford figure out the structure of the atomic nucleus without looking at it? Simulate the famous experiment in which he disproved the Plum Pudding model of the atom by observing alpha particles bouncing off atoms and determining that they must have a small core. This simulation of a Rutherford Scattering is from the Physics Education Technology website of University of Colorado....

View Resource PhET Signal Circuit - Circuit, Electricity, Current

Why do the lights turn on in a room as soon as you flip a switch? Flip the switch and electrons slowly creep along a wire. The light turns on when the signal reaches it. This simulation of a Signal Circuit is from the Physics Education Technology website of University of Colorado. Included are links to related topics and additional ideas and activities for teachers to use.

View Resource Java Applets on Physics

This web site contains a series of applets relating to a wide range of topics in physics. The topics include mechanics, oscillations and waves, electrodynamics, optics, thermodynamics, relativity, atoms and nuclear physics. There are also links to mathematics and astronomy applets. Materials are available in a wide range of languages.

View Resource Fermilabyrinth

This collection of games and puzzles hosted by Fermilab is a good demonstration of many of the principles of modern particle physics. Topics include particle accelerators, calorimeters, particle counting and trapping, collisions, and particle signatures. Many games require a Shockwave plug-in and the site provides a link for downloading it.

View Resource The Science of Segway

From the makers of the Segway, the Human Transporter, comes the Science of the Segway site. The device's most impressive feature is its ability to balance on its own. Designed using the human body as a model, the Segway uses "dynamic stabilization" to keep riders from falling over. Visitors will find an explanation of how the personal transportation device uses a special type of gyroscope...
