This is an archival version of the Physics 2000 web site that was originally hosted at the University of Colorado at Boulder. It used interactive illustrations and applets that no longer function on current browsers. However, the text and pedagogical approach will be of interest to some instructors and students.
This site uses everyday technologies to show science at work. The goal is make physics more approachable and applicable to everyday activities. Topics covered include electromagnetism, quantum physics, radioactivity, and isotopes with applications such as lasers, CAT Scans, microwaves, and computer screens.
