Exercise

Stringwave demonstration of wave properties Using the Stringwave program, demonstrate the following concepts: Standing waves and Reflection. List the concept, how you had to set up the program (manual/oscillate/pulse, fixed end/loose end/no end, level of damping). Tell what happens in each case. Capture and paste one figure for Standing waves and two for damping to compare high and low damping. Standing wave Type of wave setting = Amplitude = Frequency = Damping = Tension = Reflection: Type of wave setting = Damping = 0 Tension =
