View Resource Roller Coaster G-Forces

This page, created by Tom Henderson of Glenbrook South High School, features an animated image and a discussion of the forces involved in going through a looping coaster. This page is fairly simplistic, but it does provides links to other helpful physics resources. Some of these include lesson plans discussing the subjects of: acceleration, net force and acceleration, free body diagrams,...

View Resource Planetary Motion

This web page demonstrates Kepler's Laws through a Flash simulation. The user places an object at some distance from the sun and gives it an initial velocity to orbit the sun. Once the simulation begins, it shows the distance between the planet and the sun, the days that have gone by, and the orbiting speed. An option is also available to show the areas swept out by the object in equal times....

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 Wake Forest University Physics Demo Videos

Authored by Professor G. Eric Matthews, this web page describes a project at Wake Forest University to create videos of common physics lecture demonstrations. The goals of the project, the participants, some details about the video production, and a few standard demonstrations are given. This is a great introduction of classroom ready materials for physics curriculum.

View Resource Circular Motion Activities

This is an online laboratory where students may view video clips and Flash simulations that model amusement park rides. Students then may use a stop watch to measure velocity and period. With these measurements and some other given information they can calculate centripetal force and acceleration.
