OPTIKA Ripple Tank is simple to assemble, easy to use, produces reliable and repeatable results, and has excellent visual resolution of the wave front.
The stroboscopic lamp is fitted with an extra-bright 3W LED, which is synchronised with the surface-wave generator. The control unit is equipped with a digital display and allows to set or to stop the synchronism of the vibrator with the lamp, the modulation of wave amplitude and its frequency. The vibrator is electro-dynamic type. The tank is provided with two adjustable feet and with an easy-to-use drain pipe ending with a tap.
Some experiments that can be carried out:
- Superficial waves on water
- Propagation speed
- Stationary waves
- Huygens principle
