Main Document

One Dimensional Wave Superposition JS Model 

written by Wolfgang Christian and Francisco Esquembre

The One-Dimensional Wave Function Superposition JavaScript Model shows how the superposition principle gives rise to wave phenomena such as standing waves and beats.¬†¬†Users enter real-valued wave functions and observe both the time dependent functions and their superposition. This model uses the JavaScript mathematical function parser.  

The Molecular Dynamics Performance  JS Model was developed using the Easy Java Simulations (EJS) version 5.  It is distributed as a ready-to-run html page and requires only a browser with JavaScript support.
