Physlet Sound Illustrations Package
written by Andreu Glasmann, Wolfgang Christian, and Mario Belloni
The Physlet Sound Illustrations Package contains JavaScript adaptations of Illustrations from Physlet Physics Chapter 18.  Students need to interact with the Physlet, but the answers to the 2D wave and sound questions posed in the Illustration are given or are easily determined from interacting with it. Some Illustrations provide examples of physics applications while others are designed to introduce a particular wave function concept. Typical uses of Illustrations would include reading assignments prior to class and classroom demonstrations.

The Physlet Sound Illustrations Package was developed using the Easy Java/JavaScript Simulations (EjsS) version 5.  Although EjsS is a Java program, it can create stand alone JavaScript programs that run in almost any PC or tablet.  EjsS can also create ePub documents containing multiple simulations.
