Product Code: OPT0004

Price: 4 USD (Order Form)

Files: Twelve 576 X 288 pixels movies.  Each movie is provided in AVI and Quicktime format.

Description:  Interference between two waves traveling in opposite directions  in a string whose ends are both fixed produces a standing wave. These videos show the first 6 modes of vibration of a standing wave in a string (there is a node at each end). For each mode of vibration, a first movie shows the two moving waves (green and cyan) and the resulting standing wave (yellow); a second animation show the standing wave only.  

The movie at right is a free demonstration, smaller than the original.
