Ejs Oscillations and Lissajous Figures Model
written by Juan Aguirregabiria
edited by Wolfgang Christian
The Ejs Oscillations and Lissajous Figures model displays the motion of a superposition of two perpendicular harmonic oscillators.  The simulation shows the result of the superposition.  The amplitude and frequency of the oscillators can be changed via textboxes.  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.  

Ejs Oscillations and Lissajous Figures model was created using the Easy Java Simulations (Ejs) modeling tool.  It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive.  Double clicking the ejs_ehu_oscillations_Lissajous.jar file will run the program if Java is installed.  Ejs is a part of the Open Source Physics Project and is designed to make it easier to access, modify, and generate computer models.  Additional Ejs models for wave motion are available.  They can be found by searching ComPADRE for Open Source Physics, OSP, or Ejs.

Please note that this resource requires at least version 1.5 of Java (JRE).
