Interactive Physics Problems
By Dan Boye and Wolfgang Christian
Notes on Physlets®:
On PCs, the Physlets® work best with the Internet Explorer 4 Web browser or higher. If you are using Netscape, we recommend Netscape Communicator 4.7. The recommended system requirements to use Physlets® are: a Pentium 200 with 64 MB RAM either Netscape 4.7 or Internet Explorer 4.0 or higher. Your Internet connection should be through your school's local area network. Using a 28.8 modem will result in dramatically increased load times.
Note to Windows XP users: Your copy of Windows XP may not have shipped with a Java installed. You must then download and install Java. The latest VM is 1.4.2. You can get it directly from Sun http://java.sun.com/
AOL is not recommended but it usually works. If AOL users have a problem with AOL's native browser they should try using the Mozilla browser after establishing their connection with AOL. In at least some versions of AOL it is necessary to have connected via AOL LInk.
*If you are using OS X (at least, 10.2.1) and Java (at least, 1.3.1) get the latest version of the Mozilla Browser. The Mozilla Browser is the parent of current Netscape browsers.
