The simulation shows five different motions in which objects experience constant acceleration, starting from rest. Although each motion is different, the underlying physics is the same. What features of the simulation reinforce the idea that the physics is the same?

Physics to Go is a collection of websites where you can learn physics on your own, through games, webcasts, and online exhibits and activities. Also included are physics on the road programs, which bring demonstration shows, and in some cases hands-on activities, to you, the audience. To find the resources you want, you can browse the collection and search our database by content topic, resource type, and grade level.

We encourage your involvement in Physics To Go. Once you have registered and signed in, which requires only a username and password, you can build a personal collection, share your comments about resources already in the comPADRE collection, and suggest resources for us to add.

Physics To Go is produced by the American Physical Society (APS). It is a part of comPADRE, the online collection of resources in physics and astronomy education, which itself is a part of the National Science Foundation-funded National Science Digital Library (NSDL).

Dynamic heterogeneity for the physical oncologist

Biological systems (e.g. cells) can make stochastic transitions between phenotypes (e.g. states of relatively increased or decreased drug resistance). This means that an initially drug-sensitive population can generate relatively drug-resistant subpopulations. This video presents a metronomogram, which is a tool for understanding whether such stochastic transitions can provide an opportunity for therapeutic treatment.

In the first video segment, we describe the fundamental postulate of statistical mechanics. The direct product notation we introduce in the second segment helps us to discuss the states available to a collection of many parts, which helps us, in turn, to derive the Boltzmann factor in the third segment. The fourth video segment explains how the Boltzmann factor helps us to calculate average properties for systems in thermal contact with large baths and introduces entropy (Greek letter sigma), free energy (F), and the partition function (Z).

The first half of this course provides students with the essential tools and skills that are required for dealing successfully with physics at first-year university level. The three broad areas that are covered are (a) mathematical techniques and their relationship with physical phenomena, (b) experimental procedures and (c) communication skills, in particular report writing. The second half of the course covers material similar to that of the first half of PHY1004W. Second semester: Mechanics: vectors, kinematics, dynamics, work, energy power, conservative and non-conservative forces, friction, impulse, momentum, collisions, rotation, rotational dynamics, torque, rotational inertia, rotational energy, angular momentum, static equilibrium, gravitation. Properties of matter: elasticity, elastic moduli, hydrostatics, hydrodynamics. Thermodynamics: temperature, heat, kinetic theory of gases, thermodynamic laws, entropy. UCT PHY1023H.

Four types of OER material are found here: Study Guides, Laboratory Documents, XML Moodle Quiz Question Files, and YouTube screencast videos. These materials have been used in both calculus and non- calculus Introductory Physics. Twelve to fourteen different topics are covered over a fourteen week semester. Most topics are supported by a Study Guide, a laboratory, a set of Moodle Quiz formatted questions, and one or more YouTube posted screencast videos. These posted resources are at various levels of completeness. Some remain in rough draft stage. OpenStax Physics textbooks are used in all courses.

Students will oberve nine systems performed by the instructor.  They will then use the four indications of a chemcal change to determine if each system represents a physical or chemical change.  Students will reflect on their learning using the thinking routine - I Used to Think... Now I Think.

Atomic physics may loosely be defined as the scientific study of the structure of the atom, its energy states, and its interactions with other particles and fields. Learning Atomic Physics is important not only for understanding the physics of the atom but also the technological applications thereof. For example, the fact that each element has its own characteristic “fingerprint” spectrum has contributed significantly to advances in material science and also in cosmology.

Physical Chemistry is the application of physical principles and measurements to understand the properties of matter, as well as for the development of new technologies for the environment, energy and medicine. Advanced Physical Chemistry topics include different spectroscopic methods (Raman, ultrafast and mass spectroscopy, nuclear magnetic and electron paramagnetic resonance, x-ray absorption and atomic force microscopy) as well as theoretical and computational tools to provide atomic-level understanding for applications such as: nanodevices for bio-detection and receptors, interfacial chemistry of catalysis and implants, electron and proton transfer, protein function, photosynthesis and airborne particles in the atmosphere.
