Elastic Wave Cord

Product Code: SE-9409

Description

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.

The Elastic Wave Cord is highly visible. (Wave driver not included.)


Typical Applications

  • Use with a Mechanical Wave Driver (SF-9324) to produce horizontal waves.: Observe the effects of changing the frequency or tension of the cord.
  • Produce transverse waves by hand.: Secure one end and create standing waves, or just give the cord a sharp pulse and watch it travel down and reflect back along the cord.
  • Displace a mass haning from the cord for investigations of an oscillating mass on a “spring.”: Use a motion sensor to measure the displacement of the mass as a function of time.Confirm Hooke’s Law.Calculate the energies involved in simple harmonic motion.
