Title: Physics Central: Physics in Action
Url: https://www.physicscentral.com/explore/action/index.cfm
Publisher: American Physical Society
Description: Physics in Action, which is sponsored by the American Physical Society, takes readers into dozens of different physics topics, often from unexpected and interesting angles. On the site, the whirling skirts worn by Moslem ascetics serve as fodder for an explanation of the Coriolis Effect; a water slide becomes the example in an article on atomic friction; and the history of batteries may just tell us the energy storage possibilities of the future. The site can be searched by nine different topics, including Chaos, Force & Motion, and Material Science (among others). The entire backlog of articles is also fully accessible under the Archives tab.
