Multimedia Physics Studios



The Multimedia Physics Studios consists of a collection of GIF animations and accompanying explanations of major physics concepts. The animations cover common physics principles discussed in a first-year high school physics course. The animation and discussion have been written specifically for beginning students of physics. While the animations provide a strong visual reinforcement of physics concepts, they are not interactive. Interactive Shockwave animations are available at the Shockwave Physics Studios. Related information and discussion of physics concepts can be found at The Physics Classroom tutorial.
