3-D Hydrogen Atom Probability Densitites
Conditions of Use:
Remix and Share
Rating

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.

Students are introduced to the concept of air quality by investigating the composition, properties, atmospheric layers and everyday importance of air. They explore the sources and effects of visible and invisible air pollution. By learning some fundamental meteorology concepts (air pressure, barometers, prediction, convection currents, temperature inversions), students learn the impact of weather on air pollution control and prevention. Looking at models and maps, they explore the consequences of pollutant transport via weather and water cycles. Students are introduced to acids, bases and pH, and the environmental problem of acid rain, including how engineers address this type of pollution. Using simple models, they study the greenhouse effect, the impact of increased greenhouse gases on the planet's protective ozone layer and the global warming theory. Students explore the causes and effects of the Earth's ozone holes through an interactive simulation. Students identify the types and sources of indoor air pollutants in their school and home, evaluating actions that can be taken to reduce and prevent poor indoor air quality. By building and observing a few simple models of pollutant recovery methods, students explore the modern industrial technologies designed by engineers to clean up and prevent air pollution.

The goal of this course is to introduce participants to the basic concepts of meteorology and air quality necessary to understand meteorological computer models. This course, along with companion courses in Computational Atmospheric Science and Emissions, anticipates the Models3 environment under development by the EPA. Upon completion of the course, participants should understand the fundamental principles of meteorology. In addition, participants will be introduced to the application of these principles to air quality, especially through atmospheric modeling. Moreover, during the course a number of issues involved in simulating atmospheric processes in a computer-based model will be presented.

While Alfred Thayer Mahan may have been obsessed with the role of naval power in warfare, the 20th century saw the rise of air and space power in a way that might have surprised even Mahan himself. Persons with an interest in the history of air and space power in the United States will definitely appreciate this interactive online course, which was created by the United States Air Force. After completing a free registration form, visitors can go through modules that deal with airpower theory, the foundations of airpower doctrine, and some of the deviations from airpower doctrine that occurred from 1947 to 1986. Some of the material offered here may be most relevant to those serving in the Air Force, but as the site notes "Air and space power enthusiasts of all persuasions are welcomed".

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.

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.

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.

Annenberg Media Projects Learner Online site in 1997 added a section of online exhibits, an extension of its educational multi-media collection. The first exhibit, The Middle Ages, portrays every day life in Medieval times and contains sections on religion, homes, clothing, health, arts, and town life. Each section provides a short essay and links to related sites, and may also offer an interactive quiz or activity. This is the first of what is to be a series of monthly exhibits aimed at K-12 students and other interested users. Learners of all ages can consult Learner Online for information on Annenberg/CPB projects and can also visit a video preview room (RealPlayer or VDOLive), and consult a guide to math and science reform, and SAMI (Science and Math Initiatives), a "clearinghouse of resources, funding, and curriculum for... math and science teachers."

This small collection from Learner.org provides a unique digital lab for teachers to explore new ideas in learning. The activities are designed around four strands: patterns in mathematics, seasonal changes and moon phases, geometry, and the nature of light. Each section features interactive exercises to challenge teachers' thinking about logic, pattern recognition, shape and structure, symbolic relationships, and mathematical reasoning. The authors then delve into the learning theory behind the activities and how it can be extended to learners of different ages and abilities. Each module provides links to hands-on activities for the classroom.

This page from Foothill-De Anza Community College describes a course on nanoscience for those who need an introduction to the subject. This course is the second in a five course series that leads to a certificate in nanoscience, nanotechnology, and nanomaterials engineering. This course teaches "applications of nanoscience and nanotechnology, the industries that employ nanomaterials engineering, and what types of problems are being addressed with nanoscience driven technology." The projects required by the class are also described.
