This web page is an interactive physics animation that explores the relationship between displacement and pressure in sound waves. Users can watch two graphical displays to observe how pressure change is produced by oscillations of the wave particles. Action may be viewed in steps or continuous play. This item is part of a larger collection of simulation-based activities developed for students of introductory physics.

A realistic mass and spring laboratory. Hang masses from springs and adjust the spring stiffness and damping. You can even slow time. Transport the lab to different planets. A chart shows the kinetic, potential, and thermal energy for each spring.

This web page is an interactive physics simulation relating to work done by a spring. As a spring is stretched to its elastic limit, the movement is recorded on Force vs. Position and Work vs. Position graphs. Users may view the graphs in stepped motion to see how the position of the spring is related to the amount of work done. This item is part of a collection of similar simulation-based activities developed for students of introductory physics.
