Ripple Tank System

Great for studies of:

  • Doppler Effect
  • Wave propagation
  • Reflection
  • Refraction
  • Diffraction

This all-new Ripple Tank System with foam “beach” design dramatically reduces reflections from walls of ripple tank, providing quality experiments at an affordable price. If you study wave propagation, reflection, refraction or diffraction, this completely redesigned ripple tank system is a necessity in your lab.

  • Integrated strobe/ripple generator simplifies operation
  • Small frequency difference can be created so waves appear to move slower
  • The frequency range (1.0 Hz to 50.0 Hz) includes those important low frequencies that make refraction more prominent.
  • Simple switch function changes rippler phase from 0 to 180 degrees
  • Voice coil actuators offer precise and silent operation LED digital frequency readout is viewable in low lighting
  • White LED light source remains cool during use, producing a bright clear wave pattern
  • Included diffraction barriers (3) can be used to create a double slit

The completely redesigned PASCO Ripple Tank System– easier to use, more reliable, more flexible, and more affordable.
