Photovoltaic (or PV) cells convert light energy into electricity. This site looks at the development of photovoltaics as a domestic and industrial source of energy, including some quite detailed ...
A look at the results from BICEP2 detector in the south pole which gives evidence for inflation happening at the start of the universe.
An activity to explore energy transfer and storage
Kaufmann's experimental results on deflection of electrons in an electromagnetic field favoured Abraham's theory, not Einstein and Lorentz, but were eventually proved wrong.
Ever wondered what it would look like to microwave soap, wax crayons or even fairy lights? This virtual microwave lets you see the results without any of the mess.
A diagram showing a dc generator working, on which the frequency of ration is adjustable. The results are seen on an analogue meter, and an oscilloscope screen. Useful description of the commutator.
An animation of current flow through a resistor in which you can change the factors that are denoted by the coloured bands on the resistor and observe the results of your changes.
Shows cannonball projected off mountain. Different speeds produce different results. I particularly liked the "touch" when the ball completed an orbit and returned to where it left the mountain!
The South Pole telescope (or SPT) is designed to study the Cosmic Microwave background. This telescope provides astronomers with a powerful new tool to explore dark energy, the mysterious phenomena ...
Historical background and online tutorials on diffraction in which you can vary wavelength and aperture width, and see the results as wave fronts, and as an intensity graph. Explanations include the ...
