Demonstrations

Welcome to the Auburn University physics demonstration site. The primary purpose of these pages is to assist the faculty and students of Auburn University in introductory physics courses but some demonstrations may be useful in more advanced physics courses. This site was first created in the 90's by James Clark. Since 2001 it has been maintained and expanded by Dr. William Maddox (maddowi@auburn.edu).
