Simulate wave propagation and interference on a string.
Simply play around with it a bit, and you'll see what it does.

Yay, waves! Reminds me of 6th form physics... :)


I used this one while teaching my AP physics class today. It was great visual to show wave reflection, superposition, damping and even resonance (the string has a findable resonant frequency) Wonderful!

very nice. Can i copy and edit your source code for using it in my own simulation?
