Select a simulation from one of the above categories or click on a category to see descriptions of the simulations for that category.
The oPhysics website is a collection of interactive physics simulations. It is a work in progress, and likely always will be. Content will be added as time allows.
All of the content on this site was created by Tom Walsh. Mr. Walsh has been teaching high school physics for the past 25 years, and AP Physics for over 20 years. He has taught at Livingston High School, in Livingston, NJ since 1999. Please click my name above to send me feedback about these simulations or suggestions for new simulations I could create.
Most of the animated illustrations and all of the interactive simulations on this site were created using the wonderful GeoGebra software. GeoGebra is a free program that makes it very easy to create animations and simulations for anyone with a good understanding of math or physics.
For more information about the software please visit their website: www.geogebra.org.
To browse or search for pre-made math and physics simulations (including those used on this site) visit: tube.geogebra.org.
