Einstein Light http://www.phys.unsw.edu.au/einsteinlight/ Einstein Light
Einstein's theory of relativity integrates electromagnetism into a logical extension of the relativity of Galileo and Newton. Its conclusions, including time dilation, length contraction, and E=mc2 have changed profoundly our ideas of time and space, matter and energy.
These multimedia modules (click on menu above right) give a brief overview of relativity - they present the main ideas. Inevitably, you will have questions.
So the related links give more complete explanations, at levels with or without mathematics.
Special theory of relativity (multimedia presentation) http://www.cell-action.com/einstein/index.html A 5 minutes multimedia animation of the special theory of relativity of Albert Einstein for the general public (english or french)
Albert Einstein is back to earth to explain in an easy and humoristic manner his special theory of relativity. Interactive animations allow the user to assimilate the concepts underlying this theory.
How smart are you? - Physics http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/magazine/4308292.stm How smart are you? - Physics
After the success of our English and maths tests - where you scored an average of 16/20 - here is the next in our school subject quizzes.
We kick off with Physics - questions set with the help of Magazine reader Stu Jones, Cheshire.
"There is too much physics information on the web" - not a complaint you would expect to hear from the Institute of Physics but one that is made by many school students, teachers and anyone else with an interest in physics.
This simple statement provided the motivation for the Institute of Physics to launch this web site, described as "a cybercopia of knowledge" by The Guardian newspaper.
Using powerful natural language query software (EasyAsk) the site answers your question with a series of relevant and accurate web sites from its database of refereed resources.

Quantum Physics made relatively simple : videos http://bethe.cornell.edu/index.html Quantum Physics made relatively simple : videos lectures
IN 1999, legendary theoretical physicist Hans Bethe delivered three lectures on quantum theory to his neighbors at the Kendal of Ithaca retirement community (near Cornell University). Given by Professor Bethe at age 93, the lectures are presented here as QuickTime videos synchronized with slides of his talking points and archival material.
Intended for an audience of Professor Bethe's neighbors at Kendal, the lectures hold appeal for experts and non-experts alike. The presentation makes use of limited mathematics while focusing on the personal and historical perspectives of one of the principal architects of quantum theory whose career in physics spans 75 years.

They were created by myself and my students Jacquie Hui Wan Ching and Heather Welch, and Michael Timmins and Aris Stylianopoulos, in the summer of 2003. Some of these flashlets are not quite perfect yet, but we?e working on it.

The Pendulum Lab http://monet.physik.unibas.ch/%7Eelmer/pendulum/ The Pendulum Lab
Welcome to the Pendulum Lab! This is a virtual laboratory where you can do hands-on experiments at rigid pendula. Together with the material presented in the lecture room, you can learn basic issues like harmonic oscillator and resonance but also advanced topics like parametric resonance, nonlinear dynamics, and chaos. Playing with the pendula in the lab, you only need curiosity and a browser which can run Java applets. However, to understand the mini-lecture, it is helpful to have some basic knowledge of calculus.
If you want to play with the Pendulum Lab offline, you are welcome to download the whole lab .. from the following link ...

Physics4Kids http://www.physics4kids.com/ Everything in the universe has an effect on every other thing. Physicists study those forces and effects. It is a science that relates to all other sciences: Chemistry, Biology, Geology, Astronomy, Meteorology, Engineering, etc. If you can name it, chances are physics is involved.
Everything on Earth, everything in our solar system, everything in our galaxy, and everything in the universe moves and exists because of forces. Physics studies those FORCES and interactions. So go take a look

Fear of Physics http://www.fearofphysics.com/ The field is mired with images of weird old men electrocuting themselves, strange equations, esoteric concepts, indecipherable books, etc. To most, physics is simply unapproachable. We say "NO WAY" give it a chance!
The authors of this site have been involved with physics for 15 years. This includes college, graduate school, Ph.D. degrees, government funded research, national conferences, and teaching at the university level. WE LOVE PHYSICS. Unfortunately, not many people feel this way!
We created this site to be a friendly, non-technical place for you to come and "play" with the laws of physics for a while.

Bruce Harvey's Alternative Physics site http://users.powernet.co.uk/bearsoft/ I believe that subtle errors in 19th Century Physics have caused a build up of cumulative errors until physics now out-weirds science fiction. This is my attempt to find the Unified Laws of Physics.
I have a consistent theory which explains the phenomena of Electromagnetism, Newtonian Mechanics and Gravity. (In paper 5, I use Classical physics to account for the so called relativistic effects of the increase in mass, the Lorentz contraction and the slowing of clocks which SR accounts for. I also account for the effects of the slowing of clocks and gravitational red-shift by gravitational potential and the bending of light by gravity.)
