UROP (Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program) with the Physics Dept.
Integral Tables. One of many online, Google is your friend. The tables even have the latex which could typeset the integrals. Another good one is at SOS Math, this one has the latex for each integral as alt tags - look at the html source then use Overleaf if you want an easy Google Docs style online latex editor.
An online interactive Periodic Table of Elements.
The Particle Data Group's webpage.
The WMAP cosmic background explorer satellite's home page.
The Onion reports that “physics is done”. (warning – it's the Onion, so barely safe for work)
A great time dilation/twin paradox cartoon from Paul Hewitt. And, a simultanity video from PBS.
A TED talk from the guy who figured out how to take super-duper high speed photography (2 ps per frame). Not only does it give you a sense of thie finite speed of light, but at the end he points out how you have to correct for the Lorentz transformation (although he doesn’t call it that) to get back to a sphere of expanding light. Here's a video of a visit to the lab which does the work.
My source code, text output, and plot output from Homework #4’s blackbody integration problem.
Beat Frequency animations, sounds, and explanations. Also, a nice animation of Group vs. Phase velocity.
