Some Websites Related to Physics
The following are websites for physics students:
National Science Foundation Research Experience for Undegraduate Search Site
"The Nucleus" - resources for physics undergraduates
The Society of Physics Students (SPS) home page
Here is the Physics Today website, and also their jobs site.
arXiv.org is a searchable archive of physics preprints (papers submitted before publication).
Pirsa.org is an archive of lectures on physics, patterned somewhat after arXiv.
SPIRES is a literature database for high energy physics papers.
INSPIRE (still in beta) is to be a successor to SPIRES.
Information about the Physics Major Field Test (The MFT is required for assessment in the senior year.)
Here is an interesting commercial from an engineering standpoint:
Honda Accord Commercial
Here are some other physics links:
The American Institute of Physics (AIP History of Physics Site)
The American Physical Society: And note the new APS online journal called Physics
Also check out the APS's Physics Central, an educational site which among other things
has some educational physics comics featuring a superhero called Spectra.
The European Physical Society
Physics Education Research Group - Kansas State University
Georgia State University's Hyperphysics page
Fizzics Fizzle - Interactive Guide to Physics.
The Institute of Physics electronic journals has a Physics Education Journal
