The Propagation of Waves

Loading...
The phenomenon of resonance is demonstrated with the use of a string pendulum. Structural vibration produced by earthquakes, caught as waves on a seismometer, demonstrates specific vibration resonance. Polarization and high speed, stop-action photography illustrate how an elastic wave propagates through a solid body.
