Khan Academy Physics Course

Learn or review physics concepts in this introductory level course that consists mostly of videos and short text passages. Khan Academy also has reviews for AP Physics 1 and 2.

There are 19 sections that cover concepts in:

  • forces and motion
  • work and energy
  • momentum
  • oscillations and waves,
  • fluids,
  • thermodynamics,
  • electricity, circuits and magnetism
  • geometric optics
  • special relativity
  • qnantum physics
  • cosmology and astronomy

Another section provides ideas for student discoveries and projects.


physNRICH Problem Based Learning

physNRICH offers several mathematical physics problems for solution by students ages 14-19. There are more than 30 problems in the areas of general physics, dynamics, gravitation, units in physics, power, work and energy, atoms and particles, electricity, fluids, gas laws, waves and oscillations, and quantum mechanics. Each problem has notes for the teacher, hints and a detailed solution.


From site:  The American Physical Society represents some 45,000 physicists, and most of our work centers on scientific meetings and publications-the primary ways that physicists communicate with each other. With PhysicsCentral, we communicate the excitement and importance of physics to everyone. We invite you to visit our site every week to find out how physics is part of your world. We’ll answer your questions on how things work and keep you informed with daily updates on physics in the news. We’ll describe the latest research and the people who are doing it and, if you want more, where to go on the web. So stick with us. It’s a big, interesting world out there, and we look forward to showing you around.

Physics Facts

Delve into facts about the universe with a series of articles on atmospheric physics, classical mechanics, fundamentals, magnetism, non-linear dynamics and chaos, optics, quantum mechanics, radioactivity, solid state physics, and thermodynamics.  Articles are written by educators and experts in each field.


From site:   If you are looking for basic physics information, stay on this site. It’s not just physics for kids, it’s for everyone. We have information on motion, heat and thermodynamics, electricity & magnetism, light, and modern physics topics…

So you’re asking, what is PHYSICS? Everything in the universe has an effect on every other thing. Physicists study those forces and effects. It is a science that relates to all other sciences: Chemistry, Biology, Geology, Astronomy, Meteorology, Engineering, etc. If you can name it, chances are physics is involved.

Everything on Earth, everything in our solar system, everything in our galaxy, and everything in the universe moves and exists because of forces. Physics studies those FORCES and interactions. Let’s get started and look inside the physics of motion. Go take a look!
