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.
