This comprehensive and economical set is based on a mechanical vibration generator and a sine wave signal generator and includes a support system and a range of accessories. The important basic types of mechanical vibrations and waves can be investigated:

Transverse standing waves on a vibrating string

Longitudinal standing waves on a helical spring

Standing waves on a hoop (model of atomic quantization)

Resonant vibrations of metal strips

Resonance patterns on round and square vibrating plates (Chladni plates)

Experiments are performed on a stable and easy-to-use extruded bench. Includes a robust and reliable mechanical generator and an amplified sine wave generator with large, three-digit display. Two frequency ranges: 1 - 400 Hz x 1 Hz and 0.01 - 4.00 kHz x 0.01 kHz. Offers excellent, easily visible results. The wide range of accessories allows both of the fundamental topics of transverse and longitudinal waves to be demonstrated and enable further investigation of resonance phenomena in various systems from the famous and basic waves-on-a-string to the advanced and complex nodal patterns on vibrating plates.
