Ripple Tank (water wave)


Code Number: PTVL2025-RiTank

Brand: AELAB


  1. Excitation of straight wave fronts
  2. Excitation of circular waves
  3. Excitation of interfering circular waves
  4. Determining the wavelength
  5. Dopper Effect


- +

The purpose of the ripple tank is to provide clear demonstrations of basic wave phenomena in the form of ripples on water that can easily be made visible.
Experiment examples: Generation of circular and straight waves, reflection, refraction, diffraction, interference, doppler effect.
