Ripple Tank

Code: L1005

Specifically designed by Irwin to demonstrate wave theory to secondary and tertiary education. The Irwin Ripple Tank is a shallow perspex tank of water used in school and colleges to demonstrate the basic properties of waves. It is illuminated from above; the light transmits through the water. 

The water's ripples show up as shadows on the screen underneath the tank, providing a visual depiction of all the basic properties of waves: Light, electromagnetic, sound, reflection, refraction, interference and diffraction are clearly observed and enhance the students understanding of the phenomenon. The powered control unit operates with frequencies from 40Hz to 100Hz in 0.01HZ steps via a control know on the power supply.
