This following applet is Superposition of two waves
Created by prof Hwang Modified by Ahmed
Original project Superposition of two waves

The following applet shows the superposotion of two waves.
Red curve represent wave move in x direction: y(t)=A*sin(k*x-w*t);
where k=wavelength/(2*pi), w=period/(2*pi)
Cyan curve represent wave move in +x or -x direction: y(t)=A*sin(k*x-w*t+phi) or y(t)=A*sin(k*x+w*t+phi) :Click checkbox same V to select the first one.
Pink curve is the sum of the above two waves.

• 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!
