Charging by Induction Simulation

Charging by induction experiment

Using this simulation, you can experience the phenomenon of charging a metallic ball by induction in the first stage and charging the ball by contact in the second stage after the charged rod touches the ball. The displayed charges are for an illustrational purpose, and they are not seen in reality. You can disable the display of charges on the rod and on the ball.
In this simulation, you can try two situations, one in which the rod is positively charged and another in which the rod is negatively charged, and you will see that the two situations result in the same observation.

Virtual Oscilloscope

Virtual Oscilloscope

A useful simulation for the students in their studies and for the physics teachers in their presentations of electricity lessons.
The simulation includes alternating generators (AC) and direct generators (DC).
In this simulation, the oscilloscope can display waves coming from generators similar to the real ones.

Free Fall Simulation

Free fall simulation

A new simulation, that simulates the free fall of an object (ball). This simulation gives the ability to measure the acceleration of gravity by taking successive shots of the falling object with recording the time of each shot and measuring the coordinate y for each shot. It also enables us to check the famous free fall equation:
y = (1/2) gtĀ²
