About This Paper
February 15, 1999
This paper was designed to take advantage of the capabilities of advanced web browsers such as Netscape Navigator
4 and Internet Explorer 4. The sections of the paper can be accessed randomly via navigation buttons on the main
page or by navigation buttons on the left side of each body page. At the bottom of each body page are arrow buttons
allowing you to move through the sections sequentially, forwards or in reverse. Additionally, the animation at
the bottom left of the body page is a link back the main page.
The body pages consist of three frames. At the right is the text of the body page in a scrollable window. At
the left are navigation buttons. The bottom frame displays selected equations and references. Equation references
and bibliographical citations are highlighted as hyperlinks in the text. When you click an equation or reference
hyper link, the selected equation or bibliographical reference is displayed in the frame at the bottom of the screen.
In order to access all of the features of this paper, you must open the paper using a browser that supports
Java Script. We have tested the paper using Netscape Navigator 4.08 and Microsoft Internet Explorer 4 on Windows
95 and Windows 98, and Netscape Navigator 4 on the Macintosh.
The authors are indebted to Krist Bender and Jennifer A. Drummond of Rice University DAC-Net for the graphic

was provided by Kun Lu of the Rice University Mechanical Engineering Department.
We also wish to acknowledge the SPENDULAP design team that built the apparatus during the 1996 - 1997 academic
year: Marco Leal, Andrea Mendez, Quinton Nixon, Christa Robbins, and Luis Fernandez.
