American Institute of Physics (AIP)

[Note: Site review from the "Where Are They Now" section of the August 8,1997 Scout Report: "The American Institute of Physics was featured in the August 5, 1994 edition of the Scout Report. AIP has one of the most long standing presences of any scholarly society on the Internet. The AIP site contains employment opportunities, links to its ten member organizations, its publications, and programs....
How Things Work

If you've ever wondered how a neon light works, how food cooks, or why dust settles on the moving blades of a fan, this is an excellent place to find out. Professor Louis Bloomfield of the University of Virginia Physics Department urges users to "think of this site as a radio call-in program that's being held on the WWW instead of the radio." Users email questions about how things work and he...
Welcome to Zona Land: Education in Physics and Mathematic

Zona Land, created by Ed Zobel, is a science and mathematics resource site for students and teachers. The site illustrates mathematical and physical principles by the use of Java applets and VRML simulations. The Science section contains the Physics Department (mechanics, waves and light), EZ Graph, and EZ Evaluator. EZ Graph allows the user to view the graph of a desired function. Evaluator is...
Relativity: The Special and General Theory provides this newly online English text version of the great physicist and humanitarian Albert Einstein's "Relativity: The Special and General Theory" from Robert W. Lawson's 1920 translation. The page is divided into the following sections: Einstein's three-part text ("The Special Theory of Relativity," "The General Theory of Relativity," and "Consideration on the Universe as a...
Physics Today

Physics Today is a monthly journal of the American Institute of Physics that has been in circulation for 50 years. Now Physics today is available free online. Lively news and reviews, the latest discoveries,, and a forum for discussion of current issues in physics make up the journal. this month's special focus is on the centennial anniversary of NIST (the National Institute of Standards and...

Hyperphysics is "a broad-ranging interactive physics exploration environment which is written in HTML with Javascript calculation routines." It was developed by Professor Rod Nave of Georgia State University and is available online as well as on CD-ROM. An excellent resource for physics educators and students, HyperPhysics gives flashcard-like summary pages for a huge array of topics in physics....
Physics Portal

As part of the Journal Nature's Web site, the Physics Portal, is an online resource providing physicists easy access to timely, relevant research. After the free registration users can view current and past articles, arranged by subject including everything from astro to quantum physics. The site also contains news articles, meeting and job information, a links page, and more, making it a...
California Institute for Physics and Astrophysics

The California Institute for Physics and Astrophysics "is dedicated to exploring fundamental problems in physics (e.g. gravitation, inertia, the nature of mass) as well as very-long range technological possibilities that may emerge from the properties of the quantum vacuum." The Web site offers information about the organization as well as online articles such as Mass Medium, Nature of Mass,...
The Review of Particle Physics

The Particle Physics Group (PDG) is an "international collaboration that reviews particle physics and related areas of Astrophysics, and compiles/analyzes data on particle properties." The Web site features the 2002 publication, The Review of Particle Physics, which is described as "the most cited publication in particle physics during the last decade." Visitors have access to summary tables and...
Physics Central

Physics Central is how the 42,000 physicists of the American Physical Society "communicate the excitement and importance of physics to everyone." The continually updated Web site provides news and insight into the world of physics through articles, subject and physicist features, pictures, answered questions, and much more.
