This Hubble Space Telescope image shows what appears to be a delicate bubble of gas floating in space. In actuality, the bubble is the visible remnant of a powerful supernova explosion called SNR 0509. The bubble was formed from gas being swept up by the expanding shock wave. The accompanying activity is a curriculum support tool designed for use as an introductory inquiry activity. In the activity, students use the images and text on this lithograph to generate questions about supernova explosions and remnants. They will conduct research to answer their questions, and create a presentation to demonstrate their understanding of the material, providing supporting evidence from their research.

This simulation shows time-dependent 1D quantum bound state wavefunctions for a number of different wells. Position, momentum, parity, energy, and current can all be viewed, with phase shown with color. Eigentstates can be selected using the energy level diagram. Multiple-energy-eigenstate wavefunctions can be created through changes in the amplitude and phase of the basis states using spinors. Postion and energy measurements can be taken, resulting in new states of the system.

This simulation explores the transitions between quantum states in a number of 1D systems. The time-dependent wavefunction is displayed. An electric field resonant with the transition between states is applied and the changes in the wavefunction with time are tracked. The dipole transition probability is displayed for different initial to final state transitions, and the user may select the transition they wish to observe.

This resource from the Guitarbuilding.org project uses the example of swirl-dipped guitars to illustrate "classification of matter, hydrophobic and hydrophilic compounds, and forces within liquids." Since it is not feasible for a class to have an actual instrument to work with, the students will use common items including paper plates, food coloring and shaving cream to replicate the process. Teacher and student handouts are included in the document.This is the first part of a two-part activity; the second part may be found here.

The RandomWalk1DContinuous program simulates a random walk in one dimension for steps of any length between 0 and 1. The default number of steps is N = 16 and the probability p of going to the right for a single step is 0.5. RandomWalk1DContinuous is part of a suite of Open Source Physics programs that model aspects of Statistical and Thermal Physics (STP). The program is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive. Double clicking the stp RandomWalk1DContinuous.jar file will run the program if Java is installed on your computer. Additional programs can be found by searching ComPADRE for Open Source Physics, STP, or Statistical and Thermal Physics.

This item is a worksheet/assessment on inertia for students of introductory physics. It contains 18 drawings of a block-like object. The object is depicted both at rest and in various types of motion. Differing forces are applied to the block, and students are asked to sketch all the forces acting on the object, as well as the appropriate vector arrows. This assessment was developed to accompany a related educator's guide for teaching a unit on the topic of Newton's First and Third Laws. <b>SEE RELATED ITEMS</b> on this page for a link to the educator's guide. This item is part of a larger collection of resources and pedagogic materials developed by the Modeling Instruction project at Arizona State University.

This item is Part 1 of a two-part experiential learning activity for beginning physics students relating to the universal law of gravitation. This scenario involves Spacecraft Galilei, which is orbiting Iris, a planet with a smaller radius and lower mass than Earth. Students must determine the acceleration at orbital height and the force exerted on Galilei in orbit. They will then calculate the gravitational acceleration on the surface of the planet, the force exerted by the planet on a measuring instrument, and the time it takes for that instrument to fall to the planet’s surface. <i>Allow two hours</i> In keeping with Problem-Based Learning (PBL) pedagogy, students will separate useful from irrelevant data, then collaborate to apply physics in finding solutions. This resource includes a printable student manual and links to background information on the Problem-Based Learning (PBL) instructional method. Registered users may also access a teacher's guide. <b>SEE RELATED ITEMS ON THIS PAGE</B> for a link to Part 2 of this problem.
