Halliday, Resnick and Walker FUNDAMENTALS OF PHYSICS 6/e
Chapter Seventeen: Waves I

Java Applets for High School Physics Education

by S.Kamikawa, high school Physics teacher in Japan.


A variety of simulations for Internet Explorer 3.0. These are simple but show the patterns of waves nicely:
Longitudinal Wave; Reflection of Longitudinal Wave from a Boundary;
Transverse wave and Longitudinal wave; Simulation of Transverse wave and Longitudinal wave;
Wave Interference, Animation of Interference Pattern Formed by Two Points Sources.

A nice series of wave and oscillation applets:
Superposition Principle of Waves
Fourier Synthesis
Transmission of Waves (Reflection and Refraction)
Interference Between Two Waves (Two Point Sources)
