Physlet Quantum Physics Section 2: Special Relativity provides simulation-based interactive resources that illustrate the basic concepts of special relativity. The chapters in this section cover the relativistic properties of spacetime and relativistic energy, momentum, and Doppler effect. Each chapter includes both tutorial explorations and problems for the student to apply the concepts.
The 3rd edition of Physlet Quantum Physics has been ported in its entirety to HTML 5 using the SwingJS platform developed by Robert Hansen at St. Olaf College. These exercises can be accessed using an modern browser on any device.
