It offers a huge amount of interactivity - ranging from simple animations that show hidden concepts, to powerful models that allow flexible experimentation.
Absorb Physics is divided into units, so you can follow the course all the way through or use the units individually. Each unit provides a compelling narrative supported by interactive animations, our unique simulations and exercises to ensure concepts have been understood.
