(mass and spring)
|Trace the position and velocity
of an oscillating mass
|2||Superposition of Waves||Add two waves to produce a standing
wave (-) or a moving wave packet (+).
|3||Fourier Synthesis||Make and listen to wave forms using
superimposed sine and cosine waves.
|4||Waves from Moving Point Source||Shows the waves from a moving source.
Illustrateds Doppler effect and shock
|5||Propagation of Electromagnetic Waves (light)||Shows electric and magnetic fields of
waves radiated from an oscillating
|6||Transmission of Waves: Reflection and Refraction||Shows waves reflected and refracted at
a boundary between transparent media
with differing indices of refraction.
|7||Find the Fastest Path (Fermat's Principle)||Illustrates the principle of least time by
comparing particles traveling on two
|8||Thin Lens and Mirrors||Traces rays and constructs images of
objects viewed with thin lenses and with
mirrors (both concave and convex).
|9||Physics of the Rainbow (total internal reflection)||Traces rays on various trajectories
through water drops, showing the limiting
"caustics" that produce the rainbow.
|10||Two Slit Interference||Compare relative path lengths for
producing interference maxima and
minima for waves passing through two slits.
|11||Blackbody Radiation||Compare the Planck radiation spectra for
black-body sources at two temperatures.
