A Model of Torsional and Transverse Waves!
This intriguing, visually stunning hands-on apparatus is certain to catch your students' attention and get their brain waves flowing. With this true torsional wave, you can easily and effectively demonstrate nearly all the fundamental aspects of mechanical waves, including: frequency, wavelength, amplitude, propagation, superposition, amplitude decay, standing waves, resonance, and reflection.
When viewed horizontally and from the side, you and your students can also study the motion of transverse waves such as electromagnetic waves and waves in liquids. Plus, students can go beyond the confines of traditional wave models to learn about impedance matching and efficient energy transfer.
