Waves

Waves gives you four ways to show classic experiments involving waves phenomena.

YouÂ’ll use it to:

  • Show how ripple tanks and light boxes enable us top see the same phenomena in different ways
  • Explain about frequency, wavelength and speed of waves.
  • Show how we represent the effects of waves in ray diagrams
  • Explore reflection off straight and curved surfaces
  • Explore refraction
  • Describe how lenses work
  • Explain how fibre optics work
  • Explore diffraction
  • Look at interference patterns
