Physlets

Physlets were created by Wolfgang Christian at Davidson College. They are "programmable" Java applets designed to allow a user to produce customized physics simulations by including them in a web page, controlled by javascript commands.

Here is a list of web pages with Physlets I have created for the purpose of illustrating concepts in class. This is a work in progress; the reader is encouraged to check back regularly for new additions.


Mechanics


Electricity & Magnetism


Optics


Waves
