of Light: The Mathematics of Rainbows - http://www.geom.umn.edu/education/calc-init/rainbow/
How are rainbows formed? Why do they only occur when the sun is behind
the observer? If the sun is low on the horizon, at what angle in the sky
should we expect to see a rainbow? This lab helps to answer these and other
questions by examining a mathematical model of light passing through a
water droplet. (University of Minnesota Calculus Initiative)

about physics and familiar high-tech devices. Discover the impacts of Einstein
and other early 20th-century physicists on modern technology, and enter
the exotic world of quantum physics. (University of Colorado at Boulder)
Demonstrations and Activities - http://science.clayton.edu/pratte/jmp4.html
From "The Physics of Everyday Life" workshop, which focused on five key
physical concepts: Newton's laws of motion, Bernoulli's equation, the 1st
law of thermodynamics, Ohm's law, and Faraday's induction law, using such
activities as building a lever, flying an airplane, throwing a curve ball,
boiling water, and turning on a light bulb. (Clayton College, Georgia)
Investigations - http://aci.mta.ca/TheUmbrella/Physics/P3401/InvestigationList.html

with brief biographical information and a description of the discovery
taken from the Nobel Foundation's text describing each laureate's discovery
and other sources.
of 20th Century Women to Physics - http://www.physics.ucla.edu/~cwp/
A documented archive of information about women who have made original
and important contributions to physics this century through 1975. Includes
a short essay explaining why there are very few women in science during
the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries. (UCLA)
the Next Millennium" - http://www.Colorado.EDU/physics/APAS4800/mapping.html
Large collection of links to Web resources related to a futuristic book,
"Mapping the Next Millennium." Includes space, subatomic particles, and
everything in between.
Physics - http://www.tri-c.cc.oh.us/metro/faculty/gram/physics.htm
This site provides a brief, very basic introduction to physics. "This is
mainly for first-year physics students. Some of it may be easy for you,
but other things are hard. Mostly algebra level, some calculus. It contains
very skimpy graphics which take up very little memory and should load quickly.
This is meant to supplement a regular text. Work a lot of problems in a
book." (Cuyahoga Community College, Cleveland, Ohio)
and Einstein - http://galileoandeinstein.physics.virginia.edu/
Online notes and links for a college physics course. "The course explores
two revolutions in our perception of the universe. The first, in which
Galileo played the leading role, was the realization that what we see in
the heavens -- the moon, the planets, the sun and stars -- are physical
objects.... The second revolution was Einstein's realization that this
was not the whole truth -- space and time are not as straightforward as
they first appear, but are related to each other in a simple but unexpected
way. Among other results, this leads to the surprising consequence that
mass and energy are different aspects of the same thing!" (U. of Virgina)
Electricity - http://www.mos.org/sln/toe/toe.html
This Web site explores the history and development of static electricity
with an emphasis on the Van De Graff generator at a major science museum.
(Museum of Science, Boston)
the Universe and the Electron - http://www.iop.org/Physics/Electron/Exhibition/
Subtitled "An exhibition to celebrate the centenary of the discovery of
the electron," this "web site is designed to complement the exhibition
of the same name that is now running at the Science Museum in London."
(Science Museum, London and the Institute of Physics)
Soundry - http://library.thinkquest.org/19537/Main.html
"The Soundry is an exciting, interactive, and educational web site about
sound. Covering everything from the most basic concepts of what sound actually
is to the specifics of how humans perceive it, The Soundry aims to promote
enthusiasm and knowledge of sound." (ThinkQuest)
Park Physics - http://www.learner.org/exhibits/parkphysics/
"How do physics laws affect amusement park ride design? In this exhibit,
you'll have a chance to find out by designing your own roller coaster.
Plan it carefully--it has to pass a safety inspection.You can also experiment
with bumper car collisions." (Annenberg/CPB Project)
