Interactive physics demonstrations

leave a comment »

And, speaking of self-education, here’s a useful site:

Physics provides more than 40 online interactives that demonstrate concepts in mechanics, fluid mechanics and dynamics, electromagnetism, and quantum physics. Watch simulations of a pendulum, suspension bridge, charged particle in a magnetic chamber, hourglass, Archimedes’ Principle of Buoyancy, electrical fields, gears, light-matter interactions, Newton’s Cradle, pulleys, springs, water flow when a dam collapses, and more.

I had to change the timeout for connection (under Options, Preferences) from 5 seconds to 15 seconds in order to connect. But then it connected fine, and it’s pretty cool.
