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.
An animation which looks at the inelastic collision between two cars.
This page explain what polarisation is, and how light can be polarised using filters, reflection, refraction or scattering.
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.
An animated representation of the famous alpha-particle scattering demonstration. You can adjust the frequency of arrival of the particles and observe which make it through and which rebound.
Explains law of reflection including interactive Java tutorials. Links to ideas of fluorescence, diffraction, polarization, scattering and virtual microscopy.
Simulation of alpha scattering with several target atoms and binding energy calculations.
Ernest Rutherford (1871 - 1937) greatest contribution to physics were his investigations into the scattering of alpha rays and the nature of the inner structure of the atom.
Sir Chandrasekhara Raman (1888 - 1970) received the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1930 for his work on the scattering of light and for the discovery of the effect named after him.
