Elastic and inelastic collisions on a linear air track
Clear animation of oscillating spring. Can calculate spring constant and elastic limit from the graph.
This activity lets you deal with 2D elastic/inelastic collisions on a flat (or tilted) table and even use magnetic pucks! Subscription required but with 30 day free trial.
This page explain what polarisation is, and how light can be polarised using filters, reflection, refraction or scattering.
The site give notes on Hooke's law and the effects caused when a string exceed its elastic limits. And using young's Modulus to determine how much a wire is stretch when a mass is hang.
A brief and detailed explanation of why the sky is blue, touching on Rayleigh scattering, the wavelength of light and how our eyes work.
How light is scattered in the atmosphere, explained simply.
How fleas and catapults and other similar devices and animals use elastic energy storage devices to convert slow muscle energy into faster kinetic energy.
