Longitudinal Pulse

Ray Tuck
  • The simulation represents a longitudinal pulse traveling along a spring. The grey bands represent the coils of the spring.
  • As the piston moves to the right it compresses the coils in front of it. As it moves to the left it stretches the coils.
  • The compression moves along the spring as a pulse.
