Demos: 1S-09 Wave Motion Demonstrator

Image 1S-09 - Wave Motion Demonstrator

A Transverse Wave Motion Demonstrator that allows mechanical waves to be created to demonstrate the behavior and properties common to many types of waves.

Directions for doing the demo: A series of steel rods is attached at their centers to a torsion wire. When a rod is displaced and released a wave will propagate through the device. You can show different properties of waves such as: frequency, wavelength, propagation, velocity, amplitude, period, standing waves, damping, reflection and interference.

Applications: Wave Properties, Reflection, Standing Waves and Interference
