I am a Physics Teacher from England and I would just like to say
how much I like your Physics applets of:
-- transverse wave (showing that the particles don't move with the wave but just
oscillate up and down) -- how a phasor can be used to describe wave motion.
I searched for what seemed like an age on the internet for some good wave
animations but most that I found weren't clear enough or too confusing for
students to understand. Yours were perfect not too complex and showed the
effects beautifully clearly.
I would very much like to use the animations I have mentioned in my classroom
teaching but I do not have access to the internet in my lab (just a portable
data projector that I can connect to my lap top). I have tried to download your
animations but so I can run them stand alone on my computer but it doesn't seem
to work. I wonder, if you wouldn't mind, could send me the files or code so that
I can run the animations without being connected to the internet.
If you have no objections to this I would be very grateful, as I think the
students would gain a lot from seeming these animations and it would help there
understanding of the topic tremendously.
Im mechanical engineer and I found your applet about forced
interesting for educational purposes of graphs and vibrations.
I would like to use it as educational purposes and of course mentioning the
Can you send me this applets to run it off line,without be connected to the

Your applets are a useful tool for teaching 6th year pupils
advanced high school Physics.
I have been trawling the internet for free applets that
demonstrate some of the concepts more clearly than could be done in staic form
on a black board (or rather white board!).
Often simulated experiments are more convenient and cheaper than
the real thing- though the purist might object.
Finally, our pupils are used to high quality images and high
tech presentation. We do our subject no favours by being archaic in our
