View Resource Physics Classroom: The Forbidden F-Word

Created by Tom Henderson of Physics Classroom.com, this lesson discusses one of the deadliest misconceptions among beginning physics students is that centrifugal motion (away from the center) is a "force". Many students confuse the outdated centrifugal "force" definition with centripetal force. The author gives an in-depth explanation supplemented with two animations to illustrate why the...

View Resource WFU Physics Demo Video: Venturi Meter

This video demonstrates the operation of a Venturi meter. The experiment shows the dependence of air pressure on the gas velocity. It is part of a collection of typical lecture demonstration videos put together by the physics department at Wake Forest University.

View Resource Vectors

This web page, authored and curated by David P. Stern, introduces vectors as an extension of numbers having both magnitude and direction. The initial motivation is to describe velocity but the material includes a general discussion of vector algebra and an application to forces for the inclined plane. The page contains links to a related lesson plan and further opportunities to explore vectors....

View Resource Through Einstein's Eyes

Through Einstein's Eyes is the online version of a multimedia project based around how things look at relativistic speeds. It is aimed at high school to early university level physics students. There are two sections. One is fun and spectacular, with a relativistic rollercoaster ride and a tour of the solar system. The other explores the physics of special relativity. CD and DVD versions of the...

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,...
