Play with the new HTML5 Bending Light sim and explore how light bends when it encounters an interface of two different indices of refraction. See how changing from air to water to glass changes the bending angle. Play with prisms of different shapes and make rainbows.

PhET as an Open Education Resource is excited about the US Department of Education’s new #GoOpen Campaign that encourages states, districts, schools, and teachers to use openly licensed educational resources.
We are excited to bring the first (of many) translated #HTML5 simulations. Molarity in Peruvian Spanish is now available at https://phet.colorado.edu/sims/html/molarity/latest/molarity_es_PE.html. We along with many volunteer translators worked hard over the summer to get the translation utility ready. Look for many more #HTML5 translated sims to come!
In the new #HTML5 Hooke’s Law simulation, students can flexibly explore relationships between applied force, spring force, spring constant, and displacement as they stretch and compress springs. They can simultaneously compare two different springs, or compare systems of springs connected in series and parallel. On the Energy screen, students can investigate force and energy plots and discover the effect of the spring constant and displacement on the potential energy stored in the spring.
