physlets in the
New Model Course in Applied Quantum Physics
Physlets, or physics java applets, are
a way of providing students with freely accessible software that
they can use at any location with WWW access, not just in the
classroom. Parameters used by the applets can be changed through
information can be found at the Davidson
College site (WWW).
For an example of how the New Model
Course uses physlets to show the eigenvalues of different
potential wells, click here.

Macintosh users: Due to compatibility
issues in Netscape and Internet Explorer, you cannot run these
physlets in either program. You must download HotJava

(To place the materials on the WWW, browse
the CD to the folder "NewModel" --> "software"
