Interference Model: Ripple Tank
written by Andrew Duffy
The Interference Model: Ripple Tank investigates constructive and destructive interference between two point sources. The user can change the point source frequency, location and separation and phase difference between the point sources. The model also shows the difference in distance from the point sources to a movable observation point.
The Interference Model: Ripple Tank 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_bu_Ripple_Tank_Interference.jar file will run the program if Java is installed.
Please note that this resource requires at least version 1.5 of Java (JRE).
1 source code document is available
The source code zip archive contains an XML representation of the Interference Model: Ripple Tank. Unzip this archive in your EJS workspace to compile and run this model using EJS.
