Physlet Physics 3E Volume I: JavaScript Edition

Davidson College Physics
2

Physlet Physics 3E: Volume I contains a collection of exercises spanning the introductory physics sequence. These exercises use computer animations generated in JavaScript applets to show physics content on desktop and laptop computers. We call these Java applets Physlets (Physics content simulated with JavaScript applets written at Davidson College). Every chapter of Physlet Physics contains three quite different Physlet-based exercises: Illustrations, Explorations, and Problems. Illustrations are designed to demonstrate physical concepts. Explorations are tutorial in nature. Problems are interactive versions of the kind of exercises typically assigned for homework. This electronic book contains the narrative to all 800 exercises and links to the interactive content. The interactive content requires a desktop, laptop, tablet or phone and a JavaScript-enabled browser to run.


The first edition of Physlet Physics was an interactive book and CD for the teaching of introductory modern physics and quantum mechanics on the college level. Physlet Physics was originally published as part of Prentice Hall’s Series in Educational Innovation. 


The second edition of Physlet Physics represented a major change in how the 800 Physlet-based interactive materials were delivered to teachers and students alike. Instead of accessing materials off of the CD that came with the first edition, accessed the Physlet Physics 2E AAPT ComPADRE site via a Java-enabled browser on desktop and laptop computers. 


For the third edition of Physlet Physics, all applets are now JavaScript and can be accessed on any device and browser via links in this book or directly at http://compadre.org/physlets/. The JavaScript-based materials described in this book run on tablets and phones, as well as desktop and laptop computers.

AN INSTANT #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
 
“How To will make you laugh as you learn…With How To, you can't help but appreciate the glorious complexity of our universe and the amazing breadth of humanity's effort to comprehend it. If you want some lightweight edification, you won't go wrong with How To.” —CNET
 
“[How To] has science and jokes in it, so 10/10 can recommend.” —Simone Giertz

The world's most entertaining and useless self-help guide, from the brilliant mind behind the wildly popular webcomic xkcd and the bestsellers What If? and Thing Explainer

For any task you might want to do, there's a right way, a wrong way, and a way so monumentally complex, excessive, and inadvisable that no one would ever try it. How To is a guide to the third kind of approach. It's full of highly impractical advice for everything from landing a plane to digging a hole.

Bestselling author and cartoonist Randall Munroe explains how to predict the weather by analyzing the pixels of your Facebook photos. He teaches you how to tell if you're a baby boomer or a 90's kid by measuring the radioactivity of your teeth. He offers tips for taking a selfie with a telescope, crossing a river by boiling it, and powering your house by destroying the fabric of space-time. And if you want to get rid of the book once you're done with it, he walks you through your options for proper disposal, including dissolving it in the ocean, converting it to a vapor, using tectonic plates to subduct it into the Earth's mantle, or launching it into the Sun.

By exploring the most complicated ways to do simple tasks, Munroe doesn't just make things difficult for himself and his readers. As he did so brilliantly in What If?, Munroe invites us to explore the most absurd reaches of the possible. Full of clever infographics and fun illustrations, How To is a delightfully mind-bending way to better understand the science and technology underlying the things we do every day.
