In the writing of this book, I researched countless materials from high school and college physics texts to technical papers and journals. Below is a list of the materials where I found excellent insights that helped me work out the explanations in Physics for Animators.

Enchanted Learning
A great website with a lot of visual explanations of physics phenomena

Dept of Physics and Astronomy, Georgia State University

Lindstedt, S., Calder, W.A. Body Size, Physiological Time, and Longevity of Homeothermic Animals. Quarterly Review of Biology, March 1981.

The NASA website has a lot of great explanations of various Earth and outer space phenomena. The photos are in the public domain and can freely be used as texture maps (see the website for any restrictions).

Thurman and Trujillo. Essentials of Oceanography. Prentice Hall, 2013.

Splash Lab: Utah State University’s Premiere Incompressible Fluids Lab
Continuing research on fluid dynamics. Lots of great slo-mo photos that can be used to keyframe water effects.

Foote, G. and du Toit, P.S. Terminal Velocity of Raindrops Aloft. Institute of Atmospheric Physics, The University of Arizona, Tucson, 1968.
