PHYSLETS were developed at Davidson University by Wolfgang Christian. They are java applets that can be called from some javascript code in a web page. The links below contain physlets written or adapted for use at LTU by Dr. Scott Schneider.

JAVA NEEDED! For those on LTU Campus, we *should* have the Java we need loaded, but Java developers often do security updates, the scamps. - see this page for information on how you can download it from Sun's website. You need the JRE loaded to be able to run the physlets!
