Transverse and Longitudinal Waves
This model examines the nature of longitudinal and transverse waves. Observe the longitudinal waves in a rigid rod and in a gas, and observe the transverse waves in a rubber cord. Modify the parameters of the experiment (Young's modulus Y and density ρ of the rigid rod, density ρ and the bulk modulus B in the gas, tensile force T and linear mass m in the rubber cord), and study the influence of these changes on the speed of propagation of the waves.
