written by Walter Fendt
This applet demonstrates the harmonics of the air in a tube as an example of standing longitudinal waves. The user can chose the length and type of tube, both sides open, one side closed or both sides closed. The applet calculates the wavelength and and frequency of the wave. This applet is part of a large collection of physics applets that are available in a wide range of languages.

Please note that this resource requires at least version 1.4.2 of Java.
