Wave Apparatus Demo, Metal - Longitudinal and Transverse Motion - Advanced

$61.92
SKU PH0712
  • ADVANCED MODEL || Wave apparatus demonstration model shows the fundamentals of longitudinal and transverse wave motions
  • HIGH QUALITY INSTRUMENT || Made of high quality metal - Consists of a number of eccentric discs supporting a series of metal rods revolving on a handle
  • SHOWS MULTIPLE WAVE MOTIONS || Handle is rotated to cause a series of cams to rotate which, in turn, cause a set of 16 vertical rods to rise and fall. Their motion follows that of a sine wave (vertical motion is caused by circular rotary motion). Transverse motion is visible by observing the tips of the rods (like a ripple in a water tank or a vibrating guitar string)
  • USED TO STUDY RELATIONSHIP || A scale placed behind the handle divides the rotary motion into degrees of rotational angle so that the relationship or 'phase' between the rotary and the vertical motions may also be studied
  • EXCELLENT RESOURCE || A great way to demonstrate and explain various physics principles
