Standing Waves applet

This applet will help you understand the displacement and pressure graphs of sound waves in pipes. It shows a graph along with an animation of the air molecules in the pipe.


To download this applet, save pipe-waves.html and pipe-waves.jar into the same folder.
Then, open pipe-waves.html to use the applet.


Standing Longitudinal Waves

The original applet created by Walter Fendt. My version adds graph animation and the option of graphing either displacement or pressure.
