Subject: Your Java Frictionnal Force applet. Date: Mon, 9 Feb 1998 11:45:31 +0100 From: "leflocht" <leflocht@wanadoo.fr> To: <hwang@phy03.phy.ntnu.edu.tw> Thanks a lot for your on-line physics lesson. As a french teacher i would like to ask you the permission to use your applet on a new html sheet using french as basic language. Of course i would only translate your words( the best i can) and leave each reference (native URL, mailto.. and comments in original state.) The reason is that i just gave my students, (aged 17) a exam using the study of this system. So i would like them to use your applet to get more of this study case by using new parameters such as Mu and various masses. This page, if possible, will be added to the site i create for my sudents (it's the very beginning), you could surf at: http://www.chez.com/bup/index.htm and find it using french "Fichiers de TP" in the 1S section. ---- You ask for suggestions ? Of course i've got some. *first: The masses you use : Are F1 = 10 grams or F1 = 10*g where 10 is kg and g is 9.81 mS-2 ? (and so on for others )? case 10 grams: we use to calculate Force intensity in Newton (France) case 10 kg: the mass seems very heavy ! *second: Some lines of your HTML page are not readable for french users because of the asian keyboard translation,( i think.) Just above the definition table of forces, there is a line i'dont know what it is ? (caracters like @#& and others not in use in our alphabet but for bad words ...) The definition for f12 is quite the same it appears like: f12j[number zero]m1 g[symbol for english pound] g I think we must read: f12 not so different of m1. Mu.g. ad so on for each reading of friction force. ----- I can make, if you look for it, other text translations, so your work to make your work used by french people. Thanks . Thierry Le Floch Thanks to disregard my english mistakes. ------------------------------------------------------------------- Thierry Le Floch Email: leflocht@wanadoo.fr site http://perso.wanadoo.fr/thierry.lefloch/ UIN 4557973
