Simulation of Beats

This simulate the beats produced when two wave of similar frequencies are superimposed.
  • Set the amplitudes of the two component waves using the A1 and A2 sliders.
  • To see the two component waves check the Show components checkbox
  • The blue wave has a set frequency. Use the frequency (f) slider to set the frequency of the second purple wave.
  • Check Show resultant to display the superposition when the displacements of the two waves are added,
