View Resource Accelerated Frames of Reference: Intertial Forces

These web pages, authored and curated by David P. Stern, provide an explanation of forces in accelerating reference frames. Topics include centrifugal force and what is felt in vehicles that are speeding up or slowing down. The page is structured in this fashion: inertial forces, unit vectors, a decelerating bus and a lesson on jetliners taking off. This is part of "From Stargazers to Starships,"...

View Resource Hyperphysics-Basic Vector Operations

This page is interactive resource allowing the teacher to choose among topics related to vector operations. The subjects are organized in flow charts that make it easy to move from one topic to a related item. Vector resolution, addition, and product are covered in-depth, with conceptual support in practical applications such as torque, work, and magnetic force. This item is part of a larger...

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 Socratic Dialog-Inducing Labs

Designed by Richard Hake of Indiana University, Bloomington, the resource contain SDI Labs that are "guided construction" labs featuring hands-and-heads-on experiments in introductory mechanics. Their effectiveness in promoting student crossover to the the Newtonian World has been demonstrated by rigorous pre-post testing. Seven labs that are titled "Vectors, Postion and Frames of Reference;"...

View Resource Adding Vectors

This online exercise lets students practice vector addition. They choose the precision of the test by selecting a target size, then estimate the sum of the two vectors by dragging and dropping a third arrow. Points are awarded; a higher degree of precision scores more points.
