Fear Of Physics

Are you afraid of physics? Be fearful no longer, gentle reader. The Fear of Physics site has over twenty different interactive activities that teach the trepidatiously curious about physics via seesaws, basketball jump shots, a spinning wheel, and swinging pendulums. First-time visitors can click on "The Basic Interactions" area to see some of these basic processes in action. The site offers Flash animations of accelerating balls, circular motions, and a block running into a spring, among others. One of the best activities here is "Strange Writing", which uses what appears to be some random computational scribbles to describe how a physicist thinks about their work. Overall, the site is quite a find and visitors may find its general playfulness quite endearing.
