Waves Physlet-Based Curriculum

These examples of curricular material appear in Section 8.9 of Teaching with Physlets. Follow a link on the left to go to the individual Physlet problems found in that section and several bonus problems only available on this CD. Below is a brief description of each animation.

Chapter Problems:

8.9.1: Find the frequency of the wave shown in the above animation. 8.9.2: The above simulation shows disturbances on two identical strings.   

 

Additional Problems:

8.9.ap 1:  The above simulations show disturbances on two identical strings. 8.9.ap 2:The simulation shows how two waves can add together to produce a standing wave on a string. The waves in the first two panels have been superimposed to produce the wave in the third panel. 
8.9.ap 3:  The above simulation shows disturbances on two identical strings.   8.9.ap 4:The above simulation shows disturbances on two identical strings.
