Introduction to Physlets


Be sure the simulation has finished loading before you begin.


Click on the Example 1 hyperlink below to initialize the simulation at the top of the page. Then answer the question after you have run the simulation. You may start and stop the simulations using the buttons on the bottom of the animation. Click-drag inside the animation to read the coordinates.

Note: Some Physlet animations autoload and some do not. Above is an example of an animation that will not run unless the hyperlink is clicked.
