Product Details

Finally—an inexpensive, yet reliable, standing wave generator! The principles of wavelength, amplitude, nodes and anti-nodes will become concrete to students using this durable wave generator. Highly visible apparatus measures four feet in height—allowing for the study of the first, second, third and even the fourth harmonic! Kit includes the standing wave generator apparatus, an instruction guide with a detailed procedure section and an extensive background section. Bracken’s Demonstration Spinner (Catalog No. AP6202) is required and sold separately.
