Real World Physics Problems

Founded on the belief that "the physics of everyday things is all around us," Real World Physics Problems offers a fun way for educators to introduce students and kids to the world of physics. Through a variety of games and activities, the site brings physics concepts to life in engaging ways. The website is categorized by level, making it easy for visitors to navigate to appropriate activities based on age and skill. The Real World Applications - For High School Level and Above section (on the left-side menu) uses interest areas as a platform to introduce key physics concepts. For example, the Sports tab offers a collection of physics activities focused on athletics ranging from basketball to bungee jumping, including practice formulas for calculating free fall, hang time, and potential energy. Similarly, activities under the Amusement Park tab explore the physics incorporated in popular park rides. The Education & Theory section is also meant for those in high school and beyond. It features a collection of diagrams, videos, and other learning tools. The Kids Section houses activities for younger physics enthusiasts, including games, quizzes, science fair suggestions, and resources for educators. The site was created by Franco Normani, a mechanical engineer with a passion for making physics fun and accessible.
