Introduce transverse and longitudinal waves, resonance, and vibration to your students. Combine a sine wave signal generator and a vibration generator to produce waves illustrating nodes/antinodes, resonance, and standing waves (using the included loop, spring, string, and metal strips). Create intricate nodal patterns using Chladni plates and sand, illustrating 2-D waves and resonance with higher-frequency settings.
The Vibration and Waves Kit enables teachers to introduce mechanical vibration and waves with demonstrations illustrating concepts such as transverse and longitudinal standing waves, the concept of resonance, and mechanical vibration. The sine wave signal generator has a large 3-digit display and is combined with the vibration generator for low- and high-frequency vibrations with a range of 1–400 Hz (1-Hz increments) and 0.01–4.00 kHz (0.01-kHz increments).
