Title Making use of the Sound Simulations
Description Students make use of the sound simulation, and Fourier Transform simulations to model longitudinal and transverse wave functions. Making use of the sound cards students learn the affect of frequency and amplitude on sound. By making use of the two source sound simulation they can discover interference affects. Finally, by using the Fourier transform simulation they can gain insights into transverse wave constructive and destructive interference.
