• Please feel free to post your ideas about how to use the simulation for better teaching and learning.
• Post questions to be asked to help students to think, to explore.
• Upload worksheets as attached files to share with more users.
Let's work together. We can help more users understand physics conceptually and enjoy the fun of learning physics!

This experiment consists of a metal grill that can be twisted to create torsion waves. The waves will reflect off the far end of the grill in either a free or fixed end fashion but the difference is difficult to see unless the students know what to look for exactly.

The original version was created to simulate a real device.

Please check out New version of torsional wave if you want to simulatate the above demo.

Here is another version of torsional wave (demostration)

Change the c angle with slider and watch how wave propagate.
The slider for i can be used to change angle for i-th element.

The force acting on each element is
F_i= K* c_i + K_ij * (c_{i+1}-c_i)+K_ij (c_i-c_{i-1})-b*\omega_i
where c_i is the i-th angle, \omega_i is the angular velocity, b is damping constant, K_ij represent interaction between elements.
