The Beats Interactive allows learners to investigate the formation of beats from two sources with slightly different frequencies. The beat patterns are displayed and the individual waves creating the patterns can be viewed. The Interactive clearly illustrates beats as an interference phenomenon that occurs between waves of slightly different frequencies.
Users are encouraged to open the Interactive and explore. The Physics Classroom has not prepared any activities for use with this Interactive. We are confident that teachers who use our website will come up with plenty of great ideas for using the Beats Interactive and we invite you to share those ideas with us. Please share your ideas on our social media websites (#TPCphint):
