From the massive prehistoric forces that shaped our earth, to the modern day forces of electricity that power our computers, physics is a science concerned with the study of matter and natural forces. Encompassing such a wide variety of life, physics is perhaps one of the most important forces that contrul us. Mankind is yet to harness such an all powerful force, but today we move one step closer to this dream.

Today we show YOU how physics can be fun. Knowledge is power, and with the aid of this tutorial, we bring you one step closer to a better understanding.

Physics is a very diverse subject, but in this tutorial we will concentrate on a few key topic areas.

• You may explore the topic of Electrodynamics, which concerns the flow of electricity in simple circuits (such as the ones found in your computer, although not as complicated).
• The topic of Projectile Motion is also presented, which concerns the physics of flying objects. For example, if we know the velocity and angle of an object thrown into the air, we will be able to accurately predict where it will land, as well as where it will be at any point in time.
• Finally, we will present the topic of Momentum in Two Dimensions. This concerns the study of the changing momentum of objects, including collisions between objects..

Within each of these topics are a number of lessons, teaching you the basic principles and formulae. To help you grasp these concepts, you are presented with a few questions after each lesson, and as a special reward, upon completion of each topic, you will be presented with an interactive game, based on the principles you have just learnt.

As well as this theory based learning, there are also some experiment suggestions which you can try out yourself at home, or at school. We strongly suggest you make use of these, as they are excellent examples of how the principles you have learnt apply to the real world. Finally, we encourage you to pay a visit to our User Contribution section. This is where ordinary users like yourself can post questions, suggested experiments, notes, comments, anything you like! All of which is shared with the other users of this web site. We want to make this learning experience as enjoyable, and as interactive for you as possible.
