WAVE RESOURCES

  1. Waves- Excellent website- http://aspire.cosmic-ray.org/labs/waves/wave_basics/waves.htm
  2. Transverse Waves- http://www.phy.hk/wiki/englishhtm/TwaveA.htm
  3. Longitudinal Waveshttp://ngsir.netfirms.com/englishhtm/Lwave.htm
  4. Observe animations of earthquake waves. http://www.classzone.com/books/earth_science/terc/content/visualizations/es1002/es1002page01.cfm P waves, also called compressional waves or primary waves, move through material by squeezing and stretching the material in the same direction as the wave is moving. S waves, also called shear waves or secondary waves, move materials at right angles to the wave direction.
  5. Reflection Waves with Boundarieshttp://paws.kettering.edu/~drussell/Demos/reflect/reflect.html
  6. Transverse and Longitudinalhttp://phys23p.sl.psu.edu/phys_anim/waves/Trans_n_Long.avi
  7. Longitudinal Wave Simulation-Change the frequency and amplitude to and see the results. http://surendranath.tripod.com/Applets/Waves/Lwave01/Lwave01Applet.html
  8. Transverse Waves Simulation– Two fun applets that allow you to play with different aspects of waves.
