Physics Applets in HTML5

This page contains links to physics applets that I and others have created to work in HTML 5. These applets will work on any browser, including those used on iPads, iPhones and Android devices, that supports HTML 5.

These applets are inspired by the PhET applets.

Newton's Second Law

Reflection from a Mirror

Refraction by a transparent block

Simulations by Keith Warren, NCSU for NGPET Simulations by Andrew Duffy useful for NGPET

Thin Lens Simulator

Note: This is a slight modification of:

Andrew Duffy's Original Thin Lens Simulator

Minkowski Space-Time Diagram

Special Relativity Lorentz Transforms

Related sim: Wolfgang Bauer's Relativity - Twin Paradox sim ( Link to original source )


Additional HTML5 Simulations

In case you want to use any physics simulations in your classes, here are links to some great HTML5 simulations

Some useful HTML5 resources:

  1. Creating Interactive Web Simulation using HTML5 and Javascript by Dan Schroeder (good list of resource links here.)
  2. Creating Physics Simulations for Smartphones, Tablet Devices, and Computers in HTML5 Wolfgang Bauer, Michigan State University (another good list of resource links here.)
  3. Introduction to Programming the HTML5 Canvas by Elaine Blomeyer
  4. HTML5 ROCKS Case Study: Auto-Resizing HTML5 Games by Derek Detweiler
