Additional Learning Tools and Resources

Watching a presentation is a passive activity. Getting information is important ... but its not the destination or end point. Now that you've watched the video, its time to do something with the information you've heard. It's time to act on it. The resources below provide an opportunity to do this. We encourage learners to solidify their learning through the use of one or more of the following resources.

Physics Interactives, Waves and Sound: Wave Addition Simulation

Trying to understand wave interference? There's nothing better than watching it happen. Use this simulation tool to send two waves in opposite directions along the same medium and observe the interference.

Physics Interactives, Waves and Sound: Beats Formation

Like wave interference, viewing the formation of beats is a great way to learn about beats. In this simulation, you adjust the frequency of two tuning forks and observe the resulting interference pattern.

Concept Builders, Waves and Sound Chapter: Wave Interference

Explore wave interference and the shape of the resultant with this Concept Builder. 


Physics Tutorial, Sound Waves and Music Chapter: Sound Interference

Our video tutorials are motivated by the existing written tutorials on our website. The written tutorials still provide a great reference when needed. This page correlates with the video.
