The Virtual Physics Laboratory is a collection of Java Applets
and accompanying documentation. An Applet is a small program which
is written in Java. Java Applets can be included in an HTML page.
(HTML is the source code for the documents you look at on the world wide web).
If your browser is Java enabled, the applets code is transfered to
your system and executed by your browser.
