Light Sound and Waves

Using wave simulations

Teaching Guidance for 14-16 PRACTICAL PHYISCS

There are many excellent applets available online that show wave behaviour as if observing a ripple tank or oscilloscope screen.

These cannot substitute for experience of the phenomena themselves but provide a powerful way of helping students to visualize. They provide a valuable complement to experiments by removing extraneous effects.
