Useful information driven site which provides details on how light is refracted (including total internal reflection).
A concise but detailed explanation of refraction. Clear diagrams and worked examples, some harder than others.
Applet showing refraction of light from medium 1 to medium 2. refractive indices and incident angle can be altered, and total internal reflection demonstrated.
A material being researched for health uses could lead to a new type of rocket engine.
2D physics engine that provides the ability to create objects and see how they react to things such as gravity and air resistance etc.
A discussion of the possibility of ion engines and how they would work.
Applet in two parts - the first a fish's view from under water. In the second the position of the cursor is the source of a light ray. Its path from within the water to an observer appears.
an excellent search engine you type a question and Ask Jeeves comes up with either the solution or a series of similar questions with answers.
An adiabatic process is one in which no heat is gained or lost by the system. The first law of thermodynamics with Q=0 shows that all the change in internal energy is in the form of work done.
Information on critical angles with links to information on total internal reflection.
