Fear of Physics

Site Review

Don't let fear discourage you from physics! In the Fear of Physics site, you'll find activities to make learning physics fun.

Understand the physics behind a jumpshot in basketball. Help two kids (one big, one small) balance on a seesaw. And find out how roller coasters are loaded with physics.

You’ll also gain answers to questions like these: Why don't satellites fall from the sky? Why are earthquakes so destructive? What happens when you move very, very fast?

Explore the Basic Interactions section of the site to better understand the basic concepts. And don't forget to check out the Homework Help section. Here you'll find help on a range of physics topics from Newton's Laws to electric fields and magnetic flux.
