View Resource Origins: The Heart of the Matter

This is an interactive website exploring the history, people, and landscape of CERN, home of the world's largest particle accelerator. The site examines the scientific and cultural ideas that have emerged from the research facility.

View Resource WFU Physics Demo Video: Rotating Person and Weights

This video demonstrates the conservation of angular momentum. In the experiment, as weights are pulled closer to the axis of rotation, a person on a rotating platform will spin faster due to a change in the moment of inertia. This movie is part of a collection of typical lecture demonstration videos put together by the physics department at Wake Forest University.

View Resource Friction - What a Drag

This is a lab designed to teach students to recognize that weight and surface affect friction and not surface area. The experiment uses wood blocks on a variety of surfaces.
