Mechanical Waves (Physics)

Logo for Mechanical Waves (Physics)
This website is a tutorial for the study of mechanical waves.  It offers a great review on mechanical waves describing longitudinal and transverse waves.  Interactive activities are also found in this site.  One section, Wave Adders, allows the visitor to visualize when two waves interfere with each other.  It allows you to manipulate the wave's amplitude, frequency, and phase shift.  Finally, it also allows the user to set the trigonometric function of sine and cosine.  Another section...
