A mobile app to visualise different concepts of Physics with the help of Augmented Reality technology

About this app

Augmented Reality Models for Enhanced Learning Experience of Physics Concepts is a mobile application developed by Applied Physics Department of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University.
This app was made using augmented reality to make abstract concepts of physics easier to understand for the students
This project is supported by QEF (2020/0491)

Series and Parallel Circuit

The comparison of series and parallel circuit in terms of potential difference across the components of each circuit and the current through them.

Atomic Structure

Atomic structure describes how the electron stays in their orbits and moves around the nucleus. The nucleus is formed of proton and neutron.

Uniform Circular Motion

In uniform circular motion an object moves around a point or object in at a constant speed.


Newton’s law of gravitation states that any particle of matter in the universe attracts any other with a force varying directly as the product of the masses and inversely as the square of the distance between them.

Electric Field

Electric field strength around a point charge and different conditions responsible for it.

Refractive Index

Refractive index defines the ability of a medium in bending light while passing through it. 

Diffrence between Reflection and Refraction of light

How light rays travel and how reflection and refraction take place with the difference in characteristics

Bohr's Atomic Model of H

This will show the structure of the hydrogen atom described by Neil Bohr. 

Newtons Laws of Motion

Newtons 1st, 2nd and 3rd law of motion

Boyle's Law

This will show the inverse relationship in between pressure and volume of gases.

Factors affecting the strength of an electromagnet

An electromagnet can be observed by wrapping a wire round a soft-iron core

Resistance Management

* Measurement of the resistance of a conductor with a voltmeter and an ammeter (Ohm’s law).
* Change of the resistance of a conductor with its length and cross-sectional area.
* Change of the resistance of filament of a lamp with temperature.

Measurement of the specific heat capacity of a liquid

Specific heat is the amount of energy required to heat 1 kg of substance by 1°C.

Newton's 2nd Law of Motion

Newton's 2nd Law of motion states the relationship between applied force and acceleration.

Circular Motion
