The applet simulates a string which can be 'plucked' or shaped with the mouse, have a driving force applied, be 'touched' to quiet a mode, or selected to vibrate at its fundamental frequency. Options include displaying phases, phasors, modes or phase cosines and adjusting the damping, force frequency (which can be set to resonance frequency), number of loads, simulation speed and tension. A sound option is also included, but only works in Windows. The sound applet only works in Microsoft Java, but a second applet is included with no sound for Netscape/Sun Java.
