Description:

Created by Illuminations: Resources for Teaching Mathematics, this activity explores the dynamics of a sound wave produced by a string instrument using simulation. A simplified physical model highlights important scientific and mathematical features. The sound wave is controlled by two parameters: the amount of initial energy put into the string (initial displacement) and the amount of tension in the string. The animation of the string has been slowed down so that model of the wave can be observed clearly.
