3-D Hydrogen Atom Probability Densitites
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating
0.0 stars

The 3-D Hydrogen Atom Probability Densitites model simulates the probability density of the first few (n = 1, 2, and 3, and associated l and m values) energy eigenstates for the Hydrogen atom (the Coulomb potential). The main window shows the energy level diagram for the solutions to the Coulomb potential in three dimensions. States may be selected either by using the dropdown menu item or by using the energy level diagram and clicking a dark green level, with specific n, l, and m values) which will turn bright green and change the state shown in the 3d visualization window. The probability is shown with a 3d cloud, with higher probability shown as a darker sphere. The simulation uses either simple 3D or Java 3D (if installed) to render the view the probability densities. If Java 3D is not installed, the simulation defaults to simple 3D using Java. The 3-D Hydrogen Atom Probability Densitites model was created using the Easy Java Simulations (EJS) modeling tool. It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive. Double clicking the ejs_qm_hydrogen3d.jar file will run the program if Java is installed.

All Caught Up: Bycatching and Design
Read the Fine Print
Educational Use
Rating
0.0 stars

Bycatch, the unintended capture of animals in commercial fishing gear, is a hot topic in marine conservation today. The surprisingly high level of bycatch about 25% of the entire global catch is responsible for the decline of hundreds of thousands of dolphins, whales, porpoises, seabirds and sea turtles each year. Through this curricular unit, students analyze the significance of bycatch in the global ecosystem and propose solutions to help reduce bycatch. They become familiar with current attempts to reduce the fishing mortality of these animals. Through the associated activities, the challenges faced today are reinforced and students are stimulated to brainstorm about possible engineering designs or policy changes that could reduce the magnitude of bycatch.

5.0 stars

In the first of two sequential lessons, students create mobile apps that collect data from an Android device's accelerometer and then store that data to a database. This lesson provides practice with MIT's App Inventor software and culminates with students writing their own apps for measuring acceleration. In the second lesson, students are given an app for an Android device, which measures acceleration. They investigate acceleration by collecting acceleration vs. time data using the accelerometer of a sliding Android device. Then they use the data to create velocity vs. time graphs and approximate the maximum velocity of the device.

Angular acceleration of a Contracting System Model
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating
0.0 stars

The EJS Angular Acceleration of a Contracting System model shows a mass and pulley system to illustrate what happens when a rotating system contracts. When the centripetal force has contracted a rotating system to half its initial radius then: (1) The tangential velocity has doubled, (2) The angular velocity is 4 times faster, (3) The rotational kinetic energy is 4 times higher. (4) The required centripetal force is 8 times stronger. You can examine and modify this simulation if you have EJS installed by right-clicking within the plot and selecting “Open EJS Model” from the pop-up menu item. The Angular Acceleration of a Contracting System model was created using the Easy Java Simulations (EJS) modeling tool. It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive. Double clicking the ejs_nl_teunissen_angular_acceleration.jar file will run the program if Java is installed.

Asset Exchange Model Package
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating
0.0 stars

The EjsS Asset Exchange Model Package contains JavaScript models to investigate the the transfer of wealth in a simple economic model consisting of N buyers and sellers, known as agents, who spend their time buying and selling goods at a yard sale. In this economic model, two agents A and B are chosen at random and goods are exchanged. If the price of the item is correct, neither agent gains or looses wealth but this is uninteresting and unrealistic. In a realistic transaction an agent can either pay too much or get a bargain so that one agent becomes slightly richer while the other agent becomes poorer. What happens to the wealth of agent wA if this process is repeated many times and if we assume that the agent receiving the bargain is chosen at random so that sometimes agent A gains and sometimes agent A looses in the transaction. In other words, neither agent is always shrewd or always gullible so that all agents have an equal chance of getting rich. Does this model produce an equitable distribution of wealth? The EjsS Asset Exchange Model Package was developed using the Easy Java/JavaScript Simulations (EjsS) version 5 authoring tool. Although EjsS is a Java program, it can create stand alone JavaScript programs that run in almost any PC or tablet.

Through this earth science curricular unit, student teams are presented with the scenario that an asteroid will impact the Earth. In response, their challenge is to design the location and size of underground caverns to shelter the people from an uninhabitable Earth for one year. Driven by this adventure scenario, student teams 1) explore general and geological maps of their fictional state called Alabraska, 2) determine the area of their classroom to help determine the necessary cavern size, 3) learn about map scales, 4) test rocks, 5) identify important and not-so-important rock properties for underground caverns, and 6) choose a final location and size.

Where previously in Part 1 we covered the basics of program design and analysis and the usefulness of design patterns, in this part in this series of articles we develop models for programs that are more general than source code. Why not use the source code directly? First, there are many different types of source code - assembly languages, C code, and so on - but we can use a single model to describe all of them. Second, once we have such a model, we can perform many useful analyzes on the model more easily than we could on the source code.

A seminar course at the University of Virginia in Spring 2003 considered aspects of biologically-inspired computing. The course homepage has links to journal articles and research papers that range in topic from evolutionary programming to spacecraft designs based on living cells. There is also a page of links that connect users to further information about topics explored on the CS851 page.

Blackbody Radiation: Frequency and Wavelength

The Blackbody Radiation: Frequency and Wavelength model simulates the blackbody radiation curves of Planck both as a function of frequency and as a function of wavelength to allow for comparison of the two functions. The Planck radiation law can be derived both as a function of frequency and as a function of wavelength. In doing so, one gets two slightly different expressions for the energy density per frequency (wavelength) as a function of frequency (wavelength. Shown in the main window is a schematic of a blackbody cavity showing (on the right) the color of the radiation emitted. The graph plots the energy density per frequency (wavelength) as a function of frequency (wavelength and shows the visible spectrum. One can switch between the two functions by using the radio buttons provided. A slider alows the twmperature to be set or changed. The Blackbody Radiation: Frequency and Wavelength model was created using the Easy Java Simulations (EJS) modeling tool. It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive. Double clicking the ejs_qm_blackbody_fw.jar file will run the program if Java is installed.

The Blackbody Radiation Spectrum model shows six fixed-temperature curves between Tmin and Tmax and a red variable-temperature curve that can be adjusted using a slider. The wavelength is measured in nm (nanometer) and the intensity is measured in W.e-5 / (m2.nm). Users can adjust Tmin and Tmax to change the temperature range that is displayed. The Blackbody Radiation Spectrum was created using the Easy Java Simulations (Ejs) modeling tool. It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive. Double click the ejs_ntnu_BlackbodyRadiationSpectrum.jar file to run the program if Java is installed.
