I work in a physical chemistry lab and we want to make some applets on a website that can help illustrate scientific concepts. I'm curious what program/language would be best to use to make doing this as easy as possible. One possible example of a program might be changing the size of a box with a slider and seeing how the waves inside the box interfere differently. From a mathematical view it would be plotting an equation in a two dimensional space as other parameters like length, number of electrons, and energy of those electrons change. I've taken a class in C++ and I'm fairly comfortable with dreamweaver (and I used to be quite good at shockwave but it's been a few years and I never did anything this complicated). I'd guess that probably shockwave or java would be best for this job but before I go learning a programming language I want to make sure I'm taking the easiest route. What do you guys think?
