3-D Wave Simulation

Main Concept

Light, sound, and matter in general are composed of waves. It can be interesting to see how a few waves interact with each other, especially in three dimensions. For example, try putting all the wave sources together.


Drag the red wave sources to move the locations where waves originate from. Adjust the rotations sliders to change your view while the waves are animated. Adjust the wave attributes sliders to change the properties of waves propagating from the sources.

Wave Sources

Drag and move the red wave sources above.

Pause for a second if they don't respond.
