1 How Things Work-Simplified MRI Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is used to detect a tumor. Our head is full of tiny radio transmitters (the nuclear spins of the hydrogen nuclei of water molecules). In an MRI unit, these little radios can be made to broadcast their positions, giving a detailed picture of the inside of your head.
2 How Things Work-Faraday's Law This simulation explains about what happens when the magnet moves through the coil at different speeds and how this affects the brightness of the bulb and the magnitude & sign of the voltage. It also explains the difference between moving the magnet through the coil from the right side versus the left side and also the difference between moving magnet through the big coil versus the smaller coil.
3 Motion-Motion in 2D Using this simulation, you can learn about position, velocity and acceleration vectors. Move the ball in different types of motion like linear, simple harmonic or circular
