Credit goes to ARP for finding this. :D

$1 = 100¢ = (10¢)^2 = ($0.10)^2 = $0.01 = 1¢ [1]

I found a great site with lots of simulations (well, wave, particle, EM, QM sims), even with a great circuit simulator we've been looking for! Here.

This is why I love this website. I should be buying my schoolbooks for the year but instead I waste time making circuits and seeing simulations.


My mother must hate this website.

Khan Academy is a great learning website.

On YouTube check out:
Vi Hart
V sauce
Numberphile
Minute Physics
Sixty Symbols

DNews
1veritasium
Minute Earth
CGPGrey (less science and more history/geography, but quite interesting)
Periodic Videos

That is all I can think of, sadly.

I've found another cool sim on the website I've linked earlier (falstad), though from a different direction:
http://www.falstad.com/emwave2/
It shows electromagnetic fields, with components such as wires (both directions of current), magnets, and insulators. Great for waiting for shocktopus release :P

Interesting...
If I ever study computer, quantum, or any kind of science really, I'm definitely using that website to help me study!

And as long as I'm here, might as well contribute to the thread... But I can't come up with anything xP
For that reason, I'm leaving you with a website everyone knows, but meh.

I'm not a very original person.

Man, that Falstad makes some pretty cool stuff. And the source is all right there -- which can be *very* helpful. When I was working on the quantum game, I was able to snag his code for the wavefunction to easily play around with it.

And his electrostatics simulator showed me just how fast my sim should go for Shocktopus. Of course, that's before I realized that his was in 2D, and mine was in 3D. Still, pushed me to speed up the calculations.
