Description:

This multimedia tutorial provides explanations and models of wave superposition. It contains multiple images, animations, and interactive simulations designed to represent what happens when two waves move through the same region of space at the same time. Included are models of single and double-source interference, simulated oscilloscopes showing sine waves combining, and explanations of path and phase difference. Also included is a detailed explanation of the origin of pi and radians, plus a simple experiment that explores two sound sources interfering.. A self-test is provided at the end of the tutorial. This item is part of a larger collection of multimedia tutorials on waves and acoustics, developed by the University of Salford, UK. The tutorials are accompanied by more than 60 high-speed videos and animations that represent fundamental properties of waves.
