STEM – Ripple Tank for Physics Practicals
This compact unit provides an elegant method of demonstrating the wave phenomena of reflection, diffraction, refraction and interference with none of the setting-up problems usually associated with ripple tanks. The tank is removable for ease of use and has an integral multi-faceted beach which virtually eliminates unwanted reflections. Illumination is from a high intensity built-in LED which can be automatically strobed in sync with the waves.
- Supplied with three robust dippers which can be easily adjusted to suit the depth of water being used
- A selection of barriers shapes and lenses are also provided to enable reflection, refraction, diffraction and interference along with the focussing properties of lenses to be demonstrated
- All of the accessories can be stored neatly inside the unit when not in use
