Simulation of Beats
This simulate the beats produced when two wave of similar frequencies are superimposed.
- Set the amplitudes of the two component waves using the A1 and A2 sliders.
- To see the two component waves check the Show components checkbox
- The blue wave has a set frequency. Use the frequency (f) slider to set the frequency of the second purple wave.
- Check Show resultant to display the superposition when the displacements of the two waves are added,
