An Introduction to Newtonian Mechanics

An Introduction to Newtonian Mechanics

Created by Edward Kluk of Dickinson State University, this web site provides course materials for an introductory mechanics class. Topics covered include: kinematics, forces, energy, and momentum. Each page features a Java applet illustrating a concept with text and activities accompanying it. The author has created this site because, as he states: "Nowadays it becomes more likely to find in colleges and high schools good computers hooked up to Internet than well equipped physics labs. As a matter of fact applets can be installed and used locally, without Internet connection, which makes it even cheaper." For this reason, and others, this is a useful site for any physics instructor.
