View Resource The Doppler Effect and Sonic Booms

This site, authored by Daniel A. Russell of Kettering University, offers an animation that shows the formation of shockwaves from waves generated by a moving source. Photos show shockwaves of a bullet, an airplane, and a supersonic land vehicle. Links provide further information.

View Resource Longitudinal and Transverse Wave Motion

This group of animations with accompanying text illustrates the difference between the two primary types of mechanical waves: longitudinal and transverse. It is part of a larger collection of resources on wave motion, acoustics, and sound authored by Dan Russell of Kettering University.

View Resource Acoustics and Vibration Animations

Dan Russell, a professor of Applied Physics at Ketting University, created this site to provide students animated images of sounds and vibrations produced by instruments such as loudspeakers and guitars. The site is divided into three sections, which include: "Acoustics I: Sounds and Sources," "Acoustics II: Sound and Vibration," and "Other Wave Phenomena (not acoustics, but still waves)." This...

View Resource Superposition of Waves

This animation with accompanying explanation illustrates the principle of wave superposition: when two (or more) waves travel through the same medium at the same time, the waves pass through each other without being disturbed. Net displacement of the medium at any point in space or time is the sum of the individual wave displacements. Author Dan Russell's text provides support for both...

View Resource Physics and Acoustics of Baseball and Softball Bats

This website, created by Dr. Russell at Kettering University addresses the general physics concepts concerning baseball and softball bats and bat vibrations. Students and educators can learn a lot about ball-bat collisions with the many images, figures, and animations. Topics include the differences between wood and aluminum bats, corked bats, and the tightness of a player's grip. At the bottom...
