Waves on a string

Transverse waves on a string


This simulation shows the motion of particles in a medium when a transverse wave passes through. You can increase the amplitude of the motion and change the position of the green point.

Longitudinal waves on a string


This simulation shows the motion of particles in a medium when a longitudinal wave passes. The position of the green dot can be changed.

Standing waves on a string


Esta simulación nos muestra una onda estacionaria en una cuerda. Comprueba qué ocurre al cambiar distintos parámetros de la onda.
