We specialise in educational software that offers innovation and value.
A few of the experiments from the Virtual Physics Laboratory - click picture to see more. These are now being made available for the Oculus Rift . Now available as a single user licence for PC or Mac with the book ‘Advanced Physics Practicals’ from Amazon. The Virtual Physics Laboratory has been reviewed by the Association for Science Education and given its green tick. Click on the ASE tick icon to see the review.
We are currently looking for foreign distributors who are currently in the education/scientific field. If interested please email.
Virtual Science has a solid track record of innovation and thousands of satisfied customers.
The founder and director of Virtual Science, Dr Rob Lucas has published extensively in subjects as diverse as logic applied to law and how to represent virtual organs so that they can be dissected in a virtual immersive world. You can find a list of his publications under Research above.
Measuring the flux linkage using an oscilloscope and a signal generator.
The output of the inner coil goes to the oscilloscope which can be operated just like the real thing.
The virtual airtrack being used to verify Newton’s 2nd law.
A pulley system and a weight pulls the glider through two timing gates.
Every student can try this, you don’t need the actual equipment for each student!
Milikan’s oil drop experiment where polystyrene balls are introduced to the electric field between two plates.
The gap between the plates can be measured with a micrometer.
A webcam allows the motion of the polystyrene balls to be observed.
The conservation of momentum can be verified by firing rounds from an AK47 at a ballistic balance.
By measuring the movement of the block the energy gained can be calculated.
No one gets shot!
The acceleration due to gravity can be measured on the Earth, Moon and Mars.
Breaking the circuit switches off the electromagnet and starts the timer.
Take a walk and explore the site of Hadley Rille where Apollo 15 landed.
Measuring the specific heat of brass.
You won’t get a good result if you don’t heat the weight right through, or drop it on the bench, or forget to agitate the water in the calorimeter.
So much like the real thing even the tap drips!
