For applets see the sims.

Unit1: WAVES

mechanical waves, sound waves, EM waves
lecture notes: part1
description of waves, sound waves. (chapter 16 from Cutnell)
youtube helium vs sulfur hexafluoride
harmonic motion demo by W. Lewin /sine function 10:21
lecture notes:part2
reflection, doppler effect, sound intensity , decibels, applications
(chapter16 from Cutnell)
using ultra sound as a surgery too : Yoav Medan
stealth technology
lecture notes:part 3
linear superposition and interference phenomena
standing waves
part 3B  music
part 3C diffraction

what is a wave
water waves are circular
waves: amplitude and frequency
creating a wave from a source of energy (transverse)
creating longitudinal wave
transverse and longitudinal waves
S and P waves from earthquakes
demonstration: speed depends on the tension play with the applet
reflecting wave 1 pulse, 1 end
reflecting wave - depends on boundary condition more in depth here
speed of wave decreases in a different medium
