The vast Majority of these simulations are written in Java and Flash (not iPad friendly). However, the team at Colorado Boulder have started to remake them in HTML5 (iPad friendly) – see links below.

These are a fantastic resource which comes from a teams love of physics and teaching it.  Really handy, useful and easy to use.  Here’s what the team have to say:

PhET provides fun, interactive, research-based simulations of physical phenomena for free. We believe that our research-based approach- incorporating findings from prior research and our own testing- enables students to make connections between real-life phenomena and the underlying science, deepening their understanding and appreciation of the physical world.
