Conference location

Champaign, Illinois, USA

Wolfram Language drawing tools for physics diagrams have been developed and will be shared. These have proven to be essential tools for creating interactive lecture notes for calculus-based physics at Blinn College, and should be of use to physicists and others. There are five packages: Graphics Tools , Mechanics Tools , Field Lines , Circuit and Geometric Optics Graphics Tools and Mechanics Tools include functions to draw labeled arrows, labeled double arrows, labeled angles, pulleys, springs and simple 2D cars and trucks. Field Lines traces the continuous field lines one expects in physics diagrams. Circuit is a versatile package for drawing circuit diagrams, both DC and AC. Geometric Optics draws optical components and traces rays. All tools are designed to work well inside Manipulate.
