The Physics Source 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.
This simulation allows the user to investigate the interference due to two identical wave sources in a ripple tank. The user can change the wavelength of the sources, and their separation. By clicking on any point on the wave pattern, the user can observe the two wave trains meeting at that point and the path difference is evaluated.
This is a part of the "Learn Physics using Java" library of simulations.
Please note that this resource requires
Java Applet Plug-in.
