Main Document

Interference in Time and Beats 

written by Wolfgang Christian

The Interference in Time and Beats JavaScript Model simultaneously plays two sounds with frequency fA and fB and displays the signal recorded by a nearby microphone on an oscilloscope display. The oscilloscope's horizontal time axis is shown in seconds and the drop-down menu sets the scale. The vertical axis shows the sound amplitude for each sound and the sum of the sounds depending on the check-box settings.

The Interference in Time and Beats JavaScript Model was developed using the Easy Java Simulations (EJS) version 5.  It is distributed as a ready-to-run html page and requires only a browser with JavaScript support.
