Try your hand and controlling a nuclear power plant and try not to let it meltdown
A brief description of how Nuclear fission power works from Marshall Brain's HowStuffWorks.com. Concentrating on the fission of Uranium 135.
An amazing optics demonstration, showing views from an astronomic scale down to a sub-atomic view, where the scale factor alters by a power of ten each time.
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 series of TED-Ed videos exploring the feasibility and physics of superhero powers in comic book form.
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.
A short description of the tokamak nuclear fusion reactors.
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!
