Description: HyperPhysics uses concept maps to explore physics ideas and applications. Originally developed in HyperCard, the network-like environment provides for numerical exploration in the form of active formula and standard problems implemented in Javascript. Major topics covered are mechanics, electricity and magnetism, light and vision, sound and hearing, relativity, astrophysics, quantum physics, nuclear physics, condensed matter, and heat and thermodynamics. An extensive index runs the gamut from acceleration, air friction, alveoli of lungs, and curve of a baseball to weightlessness, white dwarf star, Wollaston prism, Young's modulus, Z particle, and Zeeman effect.
