View Resource Einstein's Theory of Special Relativity

This concise tutorial from the Physics Classroom explores a phenomenon that is integral to Einstein's Theory of Special Relativity. This phenomenon is known as "Relativistic Length Contraction" and occurs when "the length of objects moving at relativistic speeds undergo a contraction along the dimension of motion." This may seem complicated, but the animations included in this tutorial will...

View Resource Newton's Laws

The Physics Classroom presents this tutorial on Newton's three laws of motion. The impulse-momentum change theorem and the law of conservation of momentum are introduced, explained and applied to the analysis of collisions of objects. Both exercises provide an activity and then an assessment exercise in order for students to check their understanding of the concept(s). Some of the key topics...
