The Diffraction and Interference Model: Single and Double Slits shows diffraction and interference patterns from a single slit, double sources and double slits. The user can change…
Doppler Effect Model  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:
100
Byline:
A. Duffy
Post a comment | Relations
The Doppler Effect model demonstrates the shift in frequency of a wave that is produced by the motion of either the wave source or the observer of the wave (or both). In this…
Optics Interference: Ripple Tank Program  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:
100
Byline:
W. Christian, M. Belloni, and A. Cox
Post a comment | Relations
The Optics Interference program simulates a ripple tank by showing the intensity of waves produced by one or more point sources. Adding multiple point sources creates easily…
Harmonics and Fourier Series Model  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:
100
Byline:
J. Aguirregabiria; Editor: W. Christian
Post a comment
The Ejs Harmonics and Fourier Series model displays the sum of harmonics via a Fourier series to yield a new wave. The amplitude of each harmonic as well as the phase of that…
Oscillator Chain Model  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:
100
Byline:
W. Christian
Post a comment
The EJS Oscillator Chain model shows a one-dimensional linear array of coupled harmonic oscillators with fixed ends. This model can be used to study the propagation of waves in a…
Beats Model  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:
100
Byline:
J. Aguirregabiria; Editor: W. Christian
Post a comment
The Ejs Beats model displays the result of adding two waves with different frequencies. The simulation displays the superposition of the two waves as well as a phasor diagram that…
Ejs Normal Modes on a Loaded String Model  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:
100
Byline:
J. Aguirregabiria; Editor: W. Christian
Post a comment
The Ejs Normal Modes on a Loaded String model displays the motion of a light string under tension between two fixed points. The string is also loaded with N masses located at regular…
Ejs Doppler Effect Model  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:
100
Byline:
J. Aguirregabiria; Editor: W. Christian
Post a comment | Relations
The Ejs Doppler Effect model displays the detection of sound waves from a moving source and the change in frequency of the detected wave via the Doppler effect. In addition to the…
Ejs Wave Packet Model  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:
100
Byline:
J. Aguirregabiria; Editor: W. Christian
Post a comment
The Ejs Wave Packet model displays the motion of an approximate wave packet. The simulation allows an arbitrarily wave packet to be created. The default dispersion relation, with the…
