View Resource Physics Hypertextbook: Energy in Collisions

This item is a high school-level assessment to gauge understanding of using diagrams to predict outcomes in systems set to collide. It is intended for use within a unit on the conservation of linear momentum. The one-page student assessment is printable, and an answer key is included. This resource is part of a larger online textbook designed for high school physics.

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 Roller Coasters and Amusement Park Physics

Created by Tom Henderson of Physics Classroom.com, this resource provides explanations and animations that explore the physics of roller coasters. It is designed as a tutorial for either teacher or learner to be used in conjunction with a unit on amusement park physics. The author uses free-body diagrams and detailed discussion to show how the force of gravity and the normal force act upon the...

View Resource Zona Land: Energy

This webpage is a tutorial on work and energy designed and maintained by a high school physics teacher. Topics include kinetic and potential energy, spring potential energy, GPE, heat and temperature, and nuclear energy. The author uses an entertaining blend of text and interactive simulations to engage the student. NOTE: The full potential of this resource cannot be viewed without a VRML...

View Resource The Physics Classroom: Energy Transformation for a Pendulum

Created by Tom Henderson of Physics Classroom.com, this page is an animated tutorial featuring a simple pendulum attached to a pivot point by a string. The pendulum motion is accompanied by corresponding energy bar graphs for kinetic and potential energy. It is intended to allow users to visualize mechanical energy conservation, as they investigate why the tension force does no work on the...
