Pair this Ripple Tank with the Ripple Generator/Light Source (WA-9896) to demonstrate wave phenomena more clearly than ever before.
- Reliable and easy to use
- Four foam “beaches” reduce reflection from walls
- Reflectors, refractors and diffraction barriers allow for the study of a variety of wave phenomena
- Includes an easy-to-use drain pipe consisting of a piece of flexible vinyl tubing and a tube clamp
- Supported by three detachable legs with adjustable feet
- Speed of Wave Propagation
- Superposition of Waves
- Effects of Varying Water Depth
- Reflection, Refraction, and Diffraction
How It Works
Create waves with the Ripple Generator (WA-9896) in the water-filled Ripple Tank. The LED white light (also part of WA-9896) shining from above produces shadows of the moving waves on an aluminized acrylic surface positioned at an angle below the tank which in turn reflects the wave patterns on a 33 cm x 33 cm translucent plastic viewing screen for all students to clearly observe.
