    Dan Russell's physics animations
        * Simple Harmonic Oscillator - with and without damping, transfer of energy between kinetic and potential forms
        * Damped Harmonic Oscillator - underdamped, overdamped, and critically damped
        * Forced Harmonic Oscillator - transient and steady state response to a force applied to the mass
        * The Simple Pendulum - comparing the linear approximation (small angle) with a real pendulum
        * Coupled Oscillators - energy transfer between two mass-spring systems coupled together
        * Dynamic Absorbers - J.P. Den Hartog's classical undamped tuned dynamic absorber
        * Tacoma Narrows Bridge  - (0.668 MB mpeg movie) - when engineers don't account for resonance when designing structures
