Superposition of Waves

The purpose of this exercise is for you to explore waves and what happens when they encounter other waves or barriers of some type.  As you open each page, you may need to click on a link to load an animation and then push the "play" button to start the animation.  You can click on graphs to read values off of them and if you get a good graph, you can right-click on the graph and then re-size it to look at it more closely.
