Main Document

One Dimensional Wave Function Superposition Model 

edited by Wolfgang Christian

The One Dimensional Wave Function Superposition Demonstration 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. You can modify this simulation if you have Ejs installed by right-clicking within the plot and selecting "Open Ejs Model" from the pop-up menu item.  

The One Dimensional Wave Function Superposition Demonstration Mode was developed using the Easy Java Simulations (EJS) modeling tool.  It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive.  Double clicking the model's jar file will run the simulation if Java is installed.
