Physics Laboratory in Mechanics is a multimedia program which
uses an experimental approach to teach high school level
mechanics. Seven topic areas cover the concepts of Kinematics,
Newtonian Dynamics, Statics, Universal Gravitation, Work & Energy,
Impulse & Momentum, and Rotational Motion. Each topic area has
beginner, intermediate, and advanced level experiments for a total
of 21 different experiments. A laboratory notebook describes each
experiment and allows the user to simulate the experiment with
the computer. The experiment can also be performed by using
everyday objects found around the home.
Physics Laboratory in Mechanics allows multiple users to retain
data in computerized notebooks. It also includes history segments
explaining how the physical concepts were discovered, a math
reference section, a units reference section, and a program to allow
you to convert units to the MKS system of measurement. A hall of
fame with pictures of notable scientists will include an entry for
the user upon completion of the entire set of experiments.
This program is a free demo version of Physics Laboratory in
Mechanics. It has a slide show of some of the programs features,
a list of the 21 experiments and one experiment which can actually
Demo requires AmigaDOS 2.0 or greater.
You will need to set one assignment to run demo. (see README in archive)
