Description:

This award-winning site provides an accessible introduction to the theories of Galileo, Newton, Maxwell, and Einstein. It uses multimedia modules with animations and video clips to explain mechanics and Galilean relativity, electricity and magnetism, and how the principle of Special Relativity links these concepts together. It also develops some of the consequences of relativity for our ideas of time, space and mechanics (time dilation, length contraction), and the relationship of matter and energy (the famous equation E=mc2). Each module is available as a multimedia (Flash-based) or smaller HTML version and includes links to supporting materials and references.
