Waves II -- Help |
Solutions
of the wave equation are animated in the graphing window. The d'Alembert
solution is Grab the [t] slider to select the time, or animate the wave using the [>>] key. The right moving waveform is fixed as f(x) , but the left moving wave form is of the form g(x) = A sin(ωx). Adjust the parameters A and ω using the sliders at bottom, and adjust the speed c using the slider at lower right. Roll the mouse over the graphing window to create crosshairs and a readout of values of t and x.
