Models of the Hydrogen Atom is a physics simulation model. It illustrates how physicists attempted to predict what the structure of an atom was. The application has two modes: Experiment and Prediction. The first one duplicates the experiment that shows what really happens, i.e. the real structure of an atom. The Prediction mode shows an array of experiments physicists carried out and they results. In the prediction mode there are six experiments. You can browse through them by clicking on their name. For example, the first prediction was what is called the billiard ball. Scientists believed that every particle that was shot at an atom's nucleus would bounce on it or would be expelled by it. The second prediction was the plum pudding. In this case, scientists posited that when a particle collided with the nucleus of an atom, it would be captured and then released. The experiment mode shows that in reality the nucleus of an atom is a bit different. It shows that certain particles are deflected and thus something must be there doing the deflecting. In short, this simulation model allows you to recreate experiments that were of paramount importance for the development of all the branches of science.
Gravity and Orbits is a a Java application designed to enable you to investigate the forces that affect planets. Move the sun, earth, moon and space station to see how it affects their gravitational forces and orbital paths.
The Balancing Act software was designed as an accessible and easy-to-use simulator that lets you play with objects on a teeter totter to learn about balance. The program also features an included test.
Molecules and Light is a Java application designed to enable you to observe the interaction of light and molecules. Do you ever wonder how a greenhouse gas affects the climate, or why the ozone layer is important?
Microwaves is a physics simulation model dealing with microwaves. It shows how a microwave affects molecules to produce heat. The microwave oven, which makes everyone's lives easier works because of microwaves.
Beta Decay is a physics simulation tool that deals with particle decay. It illustrates the concepts of nuclear decay, beta decay, and nuclear physics, among others. It consists of two tabs which present different types of the same simulation.
Neon Lights & Other Discharge Lamps is a physics simulation model. It deals with how this kind of lamps operate on molecular level. The simulation shows a circuit where a power source is connected to a couple of metal sheets.
Do you find your computer takes a long time to start-up? Hydrogen Quick Start can solve your problem. With Hydrogen Quick Start you can review and import your existing Window start-up settings and generate a Hydrogen Quick Start start-up script.
J-Ball 1.0 is a game in which you'll have to trap atom on the board into smaller spaces. This game is a sequel to the original game Jezzball. The story tells that a very strange atom was discovered in a very far world. the J-Atom.
ArgusLab is a program to build graphic representations of molecular models. Using this program, you will be able to show molecular models to pupils, or even design matters by combining different elements.
