Superposition Physlet

Be sure the simulation has finished loading before you begin.

Superpostion is designed to show traveling waves. The superposition applet can animate one or two functions of position and time in separate panels. A third panel can be made available to display the sum of the two functions. Functions should be entered as f(x,t), i.e., 3*cos(3*x+2*t) using the setFunc1(String s) or setFunc2(String s) method.

Although Superposition can be used in interactive mode, it is designed to be scripted using a JavaScript. This feature requires a Java 1.1 capable browser with JavaScript to Java scripting capability.  Please see the demo pages below. 

Superposition is free for non-commercial educational use as outlined in the conditions of use.
