Elastic Wave Cord - SE-9409



The Elastic Wave Cord is highly visible and produces good amplitude, making it ideal to use in demonstrations of standing transverse waves produced by the Mechanical Wave Driver (SF-9324). It can also be plucked by hand to watch wave propagation or attached vertically to a mass for studies of simple harmonic motion.

Typical Applications

  • Use with a Mechanical Wave Driver (SF-9324) to produce horizontal waves.
  • Produce transverse waves by hand.
  • Displace a mass hanging from the cord for investigations of an oscillating mass on a "spring."
