Physlets hydrogen (n=8, l=3, m=0)

Welcome to the Physlets resource page. Physlets, Physics Applets, are small flexible Java applets designed for science education.  You do not need to become a Java expert in order to use Physlets.  The links on the right contain tutorials, download instructions, and example problems to help you use Physlets in your teaching.

Java Update: Chrome browser

Google Announcement: In April 2015 Chrome NPAPI support (needed for Java) will be disabled by default in Chrome and we will unpublish extensions requiring NPAPI plugins from the Chrome Web Store. All NPAPI plugins will appear as if they are not installed, as they will not appear in the navigator.plugins list nor will they be instantiated (even as a placeholder).

We recommend latest Java jre and the Firefox browser for Physlet users.

  • The Second Editions of our two Physlet-based Curriculum
    books are now available on ComPADRE for:

(a) modern physics and quantum mechanics courses see the Physlet Quantum Physics 2E book (over 200 exercises)

(b) introductory physics courses see the Physlet Physics 2E book (over 800 exercises)

Recent Physlet articles are available on the  the  Physlet Resource site.

The applet on the right is a Physlet.  It simulates the relativistic and non-relativistic Doppler effect.
