## Wave Intereference in Two Dimensions (Last Upload...Promise)

This will be your last upload assignment.

Investigate the relationship between the distance form a point on a nodal line to each wave source in a water wave ripple tank.

You will be using this applet.

This activity is experimental.

I am expecting your results will vary a bit from the expected. Please let me know how closely your results were to theory. I am interested in how well the simulation works.

You might want to research the path difference here.

Here is the spreadsheet template.

How well can you collect and interpret data | You have collected data, but there are no clear trends, possibly related to a misunderstanding of portions of the procedure. | Your data has errors, probably related to improperly conducted measurement. You have difficulty applying interference concepts to the interpretation. | You have carefully collected your data. There is a clear trend with some measurement error. You can interpret the data in relation to interference of waves. | You have carefully collected your data. There is a clear trend with some measurement error. You can interpret the data in relation to interference of waves and you can provide a mathematical example and a prediction or extension. |
