An explanation of how the brilliant metallic blue of morpho butterflies is created by thin film interference.
A good explanation of how sound waves can interfere and affect what you hear. Includes details of a demonstration with a tuning fork.
A java applet to investigate Young's fringes slit width can be varied as can wavelength. Shows wavefronts.
Non-mathematical explanation of colours seen in an oil film, caused by light interference. Nice diagram and accompanying photograph.
An interesting but straightforward page about iridescence, explaining how interference works to create rainbows on oil on a wet pavement, with links to pages about butterflies, beetles and peacocks.
When two sound waves of different frequency approach your ear, the alternating constructive and destructive interference causes the sound to be alternatively soft and loud - a phenomenon which is ...
This applet demonstrates several superpositions of sinusoidal wave forms. A basic site which gives a basic understanding of the principle of superposition.
This applet demonstrates superpositions of wave forms which you draw yourself. A basic site which gives a basic understanding of the principle of superposition.
This applet models resonance and interference effects as waves pass through various layers. There are two modes: Electromagnetic, which models the transmission of light through multi-layer films, and ...
This applet demonstrates several superpositions of simple wave forms. The waves can be rectangular, elliptical, square or a triangle. A basic site which gives a basic understanding of the principle ...
