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 Applet Demos

This website, created by Robert Harris of Iona College's physics department, has links to many interactive applets that are useful to demonstrate physics principles. Topics covered include mechanics, waves, electricity and atomic physics. Each section contains approximately ten to fifteen different applets. Each one of these focuses on a different element of the larger topic. Overall, this is a...

View Resource The Soda Bottle Speaker

This web site, authored by Tajhid Robinson of Mercer University, supplies instructions for constructing a simple "Soda Bottle Speaker." A parts list and information about the materials user are included, as well as two experiments to study the properties of the speaker.

View Resource Superposition of Waves

This java applet illustrates the superposition principle of waves. Users can control the frequency, velocity, amplitude, and phase of the waves. The frequencies of the waves can be different, illustrating beats. The applet includes a short description of the physics and instructions on how to run the simulation. It is also connected to a discussion board for users to provide comments and ask...

View Resource Classical and Quantum Mechanical Waves

This web site consists of lecture notes in classical and quantum mechanical waves. The notes include the basics of classical waves including connections to mechanical oscillators, wave packets, and acoustic and electromagnetic waves. The final section outlines the key concepts of the quantum mechanical wave equation including probability and current, free and bound states, time dependent...
