The Open Source Physics website will be unavailable Friday evening through Saturday afternoon as electrical work occurs in the American Center of Physics server room. Down time will begin at 6PM Eastern Time on Friday. Service is expected to resume by 6PM on Saturday, July 30.
The Vibrating String PDE Model solves the one-dimensional wave equation using an explicit difference method. The wave equation is a second-order linear partial differential equation, obtained by considering the forces which apply to a small element of the string of length dx.
