I'm putting my collection of physics drawings that I've been constructing for the past few years online here for physics teachers to download and use in their classes. There's not a lot to the collection, yet, but I hope it continues to grow.
The files were constructed in OpenOffice Draw (and now LibreOffice Draw). I don't know what programs can be used to open these files, other than OpenOffice Draw and its relatives. However OpenOffice/LibreOffice is cross-platform, so anyone should be able to open these files and use them.
I'm (obviously) not a graphic designer. I'm not claiming these are great pieces of artwork, but I am putting them online and using a Creative Commons license for use. I hope that some of you out there who see these drawing will find them to be useful and that maybe some of you would be interested in helping to build the collection and improve the images.
The thumbnails on this page are only a sample of what is in the drawing files. You will get higher resolution images by using the actual drawing files. From those files you can export to the image editor of your choice.
