Oscillator Chain JS Model 

written by Wolfgang Christian

The EJS Oscillator Chain model shows a one-dimensional linear array of coupled harmonic oscillators with fixed ends. This model can be used to study the propagation of waves in a continuous medium and the vibrational modes of a crystalline lattice. The Ejs model shown here contains 31 coupled oscillators equally spaced within the interval [0, 2 pi] with fixed ends.

The Oscillator Chain 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.

Oscillator Chain JavaScript Model Source Code 

This source code zip archive contains an XML representation of the Oscillator Chain JS Model.   Unzip this archive in your Ejs workspace to compile and run this model using EJS 5.  Although EJS is a Java program, EJS 5 creates a stand alone JavaScript program from this source code.
