- Amusement Park Physics
The resource allows users to design their own roller coaster, and along the way, they will learn about the laws of gravity, pendulums, and kinetic energy. This resource contains interactive graphics and glossary terms.
- The Calculator Pad
The Calculator Pad represents the effort of The Physics Classroom website to provide students with practice solving physics word problems. Approximately 30 problems of varying degrees of difficulty are provided for each topic. Answers can be easily viewed by clicking a button. And an audio file (mp3 format) is provided which explains the solution to the problem in great detail.
- Contributions of 20th Century Women to Physics
This site contains information about women physicists. Each biography page contains a photograph of the physicist, her major contributions and publications, honors, employment, education, additional information, and recommended reading.
- Cool Cosmos
All about infrared astronomy, includes history, explanations, images, and videos.
- Eric Weisstein's World of Physics
This site is part of the World of Science, an online encyclopedia created by Eric Weisstein, a Ph.D. in planetary science, "with assistance from the physics and internet communities."
- Fear of Physics
Are you afraid of physics? Be fearful no longer, gentle reader. The Fear of Physics site has over twenty different interactive activities that teach the trepidatiously curious about physics via seesaws, basketball jump shots, a spinning wheel, and swinging pendulums.
The Feynman Lectures on Physics
- History of Physics Online Exhibits
These online exhibits thoroughly cover many topics.
HyperPhysics is an exploration environment for concepts in physics which employs concept maps and other linking strategies to facilitate smooth navigation. For the most part, it is laid out in small segments or "cards", true to its original development in HyperCard. The entire environment is interconnected with thousands of links, reminiscent of a neural network.
Physics the study of matter, motion, energy, and force. Here, you can browse videos, articles, and exercises by topic. We keep the library up-to-date, so you may find new or improved material here over time.
- Kepler’s Three Laws of Planetary Motion
This site consists of an overview of Kepler’s laws, with examples, applications, problems, and related history.
- NIST Reference on Constants, Units, and Uncertainty
The National Institute of Standards and Technology site provides access to the latest values for physical constants. You can search by name, or display an alphabetical list by category.
- Physics Applets
This website serves as a clearinghouse of high-quality physics applets that can be used in a variety of settings. Includes information on mechanics, waves, properties of heat and matter, and optics.
- Physics Central
Physics Central communicates the excitement and importance of physics to its readers. Part of the American Physical Society site.
- Physics Flash Animations
The site contains Flash animations that illustrate principles in such categories as optics, sound waves, vectors, and relativity.
- Physics Question of the Week
Weekly physics questions are offered up by the University of Maryland's Department of Physics.
"Walter F. Smith, Associate Professor of Physics, Haverford College, believes "songs about physics can help students to remember critical concepts and formulas, but perhaps more importantly they communicate the lesson that physics can be fun."
- Physics to Go
A collection of more than 600 websites that you can search or browse to explore physics on your own. It's also a biweekly online magazine, with archives containing more than 55 selected physics images.
Concise arrangement of links to companies, educational institutions, reference sources, exhibits, organizations, media.
- Science Hack
ScienceHack indexes any science videos from YouTube and anywhere else they can find them and packages them fairly cleanly in one spot.
