View Resource About Temperature

Beverly Lynds at the Unidata Program Center has made available the About Temperature Web Site. Lynds provided a thorough discussion of temperature along with information about and diagrams of thermometers, heat and thermodymanics, kinetic theory, and radiation temperature. Additionally, she provides links to acknowledgment and external resources for further study.

View Resource X-Ray Form Factor, Attenuation, and Scattering Tables

This site, created by C.T. Chantler of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), gives the interactions of x-rays with isolated atoms, computed within a self-consistent Dirac-Hartree-Fock framework, across the range from 1-10 eV to 400-1000 keV. A reference paper gives information about the computation. A database of results to the calculation can be searched. External...

View Resource Teaching Electromagnetism Using Advanced Technologies

Michael Faraday was the first to realize that the shape of electromagnetic field lines is extraordinarily expressive of their dynamical effects. We can understand intuitively many things about the forces transmitted by the fields by looking at the topology of the field lines. This is especially true when the field lines are animated. The site discusses topics such as: electrostatistics, radiation...

View Resource Chandra Images and False Color

This is the Chandra X-ray Observatory photo album website. It begins with an introduction on the electromagnetic spectrum, focusing on X-rays in particular. It also contains information on false color images. The images in this photo gallery were taken between 1999 and 2004 by the Chandra telescope. Each image includes a description and a link to more information about the object. Additional...

View Resource Electromagnetic Radiation (Light)

Authored by Nick Strobel, "Astronomy Notes" is an educational resource for introductory astronomy classes for undergraduates. This section describes general properties of light, frequency, the spectrum, and temperature. Other topics include: light production, continuous spectra, emission lines, absorption lines and the Bohr model for the atom. There is also an explanation of the Doppler Effect...
