The simulation shows five different motions in which objects experience constant acceleration, starting from rest. Although each motion is different, the underlying physics is the same. What features of the simulation reinforce the idea that the physics is the same?

In the first video segment, we describe the fundamental postulate of statistical mechanics. The direct product notation we introduce in the second segment helps us to discuss the states available to a collection of many parts, which helps us, in turn, to derive the Boltzmann factor in the third segment. The fourth video segment explains how the Boltzmann factor helps us to calculate average properties for systems in thermal contact with large baths and introduces entropy (Greek letter sigma), free energy (F), and the partition function (Z).

Four types of OER material are found here: Study Guides, Laboratory Documents, XML Moodle Quiz Question Files, and YouTube screencast videos. These materials have been used in both calculus and non- calculus Introductory Physics. Twelve to fourteen different topics are covered over a fourteen week semester. Most topics are supported by a Study Guide, a laboratory, a set of Moodle Quiz formatted questions, and one or more YouTube posted screencast videos. These posted resources are at various levels of completeness. Some remain in rough draft stage. OpenStax Physics textbooks are used in all courses.

Dynamic heterogeneity for the physical oncologist

Biological systems (e.g. cells) can make stochastic transitions between phenotypes (e.g. states of relatively increased or decreased drug resistance). This means that an initially drug-sensitive population can generate relatively drug-resistant subpopulations. This video presents a metronomogram, which is a tool for understanding whether such stochastic transitions can provide an opportunity for therapeutic treatment.

Physical Chemistry is the application of physical principles and measurements to understand the properties of matter, as well as for the development of new technologies for the environment, energy and medicine. Advanced Physical Chemistry topics include different spectroscopic methods (Raman, ultrafast and mass spectroscopy, nuclear magnetic and electron paramagnetic resonance, x-ray absorption and atomic force microscopy) as well as theoretical and computational tools to provide atomic-level understanding for applications such as: nanodevices for bio-detection and receptors, interfacial chemistry of catalysis and implants, electron and proton transfer, protein function, photosynthesis and airborne particles in the atmosphere.

Rating
0.0 stars

Spiral Physics is a research based introductory physics curriculum developed at Monroe Community College. There are several important features of this curriculum. It integrates text and workbook activities in a modular fashion, and arranges topics so that students receive repeated exposure to concepts with increased complexity. It makes use of alternative problem types, including goal-less problem statements, ranking tasks, and critical analysis tasks. It restricts the equation set available for student use and is designed to facilitate active learning. Spiral Physics is available for both the algebra-based and calculus-based introductory courses. Assessment of Spiral Physics via the FCI, MBT, and MPEX compare favorably with the best results reported in the literature.

Short Description:
College Physics is organized such that topics are introduced conceptually with a steady progression to precise definitions and analytical applications. The analytical aspect (problem solving) is tied back to the conceptual before moving on to another topic. Each introductory chapter, for example, opens with an engaging photograph relevant to the subject of the chapter and interesting applications that are easy for most students to visualize.
