The Mini Ripple Tank provides visible wave patterns on a scale perfect for desktop lab activities.
- Compact Design
- Easy-To-Use Controls
- Precise Control of Variables
- Tank Measures 5"
- LED Strobe Sends Visible Waves through Tank
- Subjects Include Reflection, Diffraction, and More
Teachers can discuss wave phenomena of reflection, diffraction, refraction, and interference using the built-in vibration wave generator. The LED strobe sends visible waves through a tank of water.
Students can experiment by changing the frequency of the waves and strobe light's varying intervals to simulate a range of wave patterns or sync both to create a perceived stillness no matter how quickly the waves are moving. The water tank measures 5".
Ordering information: The kit includes a single and dual-point source and a line wave source. It also includes concave, convex, straight, and open slit barriers to investigate reflection and diffraction.
