This section is for students who have never been exposed to the world of physics before. It is appropriate for elementary or junior high school/middle school students. It is a great primer on the basic physical principles that control the way our world works. In addition, explanations are presented without the need for mathematics.
This section covers the physics curriculum generally taught in high schools across the United States. It covers topics such as basic mechanics and electricity and magnetism. Algebra and basic trigonometry are required for understanding this section.
This section covers the physics curriculum generally taught in introductory college physics classes and high school Advanced Placement Physics C classes. Mechanics and Electricity and Magnetism concepts are covered in more detail and more topics are introduced. In addition, derivations for the equations used in the intermediate section are explained. To understand this section, the knowledge of basic calculus is required, but a brief overview of the calculus needed to understand the section is provided.
This section is for those interested learning about modern physics. It covers some very intriguing concepts that seem to come right out of science fiction, such as wormholes and warp drive. No previous knowledge is required, just pure interest in how our universe works.
This section is very handy for quickly looking up formulas and values. There are several tables that provide you with the information needed to do most physics problems. In addition, this section includes a site map of the entire site.
