hey, you're really good. i like your webpages alot. our physics teacher
referred us to your pages, and i think they're pretty cool, especially
with the animations and interactive applets. and plus my mom's heard of
your university (i'm chinese), so rock on!

Your site is fantastic!

I teach high school physics and have been looking for good simulations
to use with my students! This one is a winner!

Very talented work! Keep it up and thanks!!!

Thank you! I know almost nothing about physics, but I have had a
great time playing with the applets on your website. I was actually
looking for some simple information for a 13 year old about how
gravity keeps the planets in our Solar System in their orbits, but I
soon forgot about that in the sheer fun of playing. Thanks again

Mr  Hwang:

First of all, i would like to congratulate you about your PHYSICS HOMEPAGE.

I'm an 18 year old student from Mexico. I study Mechanical and Electrical
Engineering at the ITESM here in my country.

Now your are probably asking: so, what?

Well, i'm taking a physics class in which we have to make several different
kinds of thing on computers...one of them, make a HOMEPAGE and include some
links to virtual labs ans stuff like that.

I managed to link some of your applets to my page, that the whole meaning of
this e-mail, to ask for your permission to keep those links, or if you
disagree, just send me an e-mail, and i would gladly erase them.

You can check my homepage (that it hasn't been finished yet) at
and tell me your thoughts.

I would apreciate you could let me keep the links.

Saludos desde Mexico.

applets in your web page are excellent teaching materials !!  It would be great to save
the applets for teaching.  However, I could not save the java applets (together with the

I was recently scouring the net looking for a suitable picture to
demonstrate the orthogonal mode of an electromagnetic wave in an optical
fibre for a presentation on polarisation dispersion (my artistic skills are
nil). I came across your moving Java applet description of an EM wave and
was suitably impressed as its exactly the type of picture I'm looking for. I
was wondering whether you might have still pictures of the sort that I might
be able to post in a Powerpoint presentation. If you do I would be much
obliged. Thanks

I'm university teacher (mechanics) in France and would like to use some
simulations in my on line courses.So I would be interested in using some
of yours (I can't program anything but Pascal...), what about the
I'm looking for a simulation showing isopotential in a field where you
