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.

Please note that this resource requires at least version 1.6 of Java (JRE).

4. The Physical Setting

4F. Motion
  • 6-8: 4F/M4. Vibrations in materials set up wavelike disturbances that spread away from the source. Sound and earthquake waves are examples. These and other waves move at different speeds in different materials.
  • 6-8: 4F/M7. Wave behavior can be described in terms of how fast the disturbance spreads, and in terms of the distance between successive peaks of the disturbance (the wavelength).
  • 9-12: 4F/H6ab. Waves can superpose on one another, bend around corners, reflect off surfaces, be absorbed by materials they enter, and change direction when entering a new material. All these effects vary with wavelength.
