Phase Difference Between Sound Waves Simulation

Phase Difference Between Sound Waves Simulation

With this rich simulation, you can visualize and measure the phase difference between two sound waves using two microphones connected to an oscilloscope. Moreover, you can determine the speed of sound in air by measuring the distance between the two microphones when their waveforms are in phase, taking into account the frequency of the sound wave that is controlled by the sine wave generator.

Refraction of Light Simulation

Refraction of Light Simulation

With this simulation, you can experiment the refraction of light between air and a transparent semi-disk. You can choose the material of the disk from a list of materials. Also, you can determine the index of refraction of the semi-disk when you apply Snell’s law to measurements you take in the simulation.

Photoelectric Effect Experiment Simulation

Photoelectric effect simulation

With this comprehensive and realistic-like photoelectric effect experiment simulation, you will be able to illustrate the following:
The variations of the photocurrent versus potential.
The variations of the photocurrent versus light intensity.
The variation of the kinetic energy of the ejected electrons versus the incident light frequency.
It comes with a graph where you can trace each type of variation as you vary the parameters of the experiment.
Plus, you can experiment and discover more with this simulation.

Charging by Induction Simulation

Charging by induction simulation

Using this simulation, you can experience the phenomenon of charging a metallic ball by induction in the first stage and charging the ball by contact in the second stage after the charged rod touches the ball. The displayed charges are for an illustrational purpose, and they are not seen in reality. You can disable the display of charges on the rod and on the ball.
In this simulation, you can try two situations, one in which the rod is positively charged and another in which the rod is negatively charged, and you will see that the two situations result in the same observation.

Virtual Oscilloscope

Virtual Oscilloscope

A useful simulation for the students in their studies and for the physics teachers in their presentations of electricity lessons.
The simulation includes alternating generators (AC) and direct generators (DC).
In this simulation, the oscilloscope can display waves coming from generators similar to the real ones.

Free Fall Simulation

Free Fall Simulation

A new simulation, that simulates the free fall of an object (ball). This simulation gives the ability to measure the acceleration of gravity by taking successive shots of the falling object with recording the time of each shot and measuring the coordinate y for each shot. It also enables us to check the famous free fall equation:
y = (1/2) gt²

Stroboscope Simulation

Stroboscope Simulation

This is a new simulation of a rotating disk being illuminated by a stroboscope. You can control the speed of the disk and the frequency of the stroboscope, and see how the white spot on the disk appears. You can check all the cases of stationary appearance and the slow-motion appearance.
