Simulation Ripple Tank
In a ripple tank sources are emitting circular waves. These waves intefere with each other. The maxima and minima of the resulting itensity is displayed by colors of gray with white representing no itensity and black representing a maximal itensity).
To add an emitter to the ripple tank, click onto "Add Source". To hide or show an emitter click onto "Show Sources" or "Hide Sources". Please remember that all emitters in the ripple tank are in phase.
The following methods are available:
adds a source at the coordinates x and y, valid values are between 0 and 199.
deletes the source with index n. Numeration begins at 0 and is in order of adding.
shows the sources symolized by a small red circle.
suppresses display of the sources.
makes user interface elements visible or invisible:
state = "yes": make user interface element visible
state = "no": make user interface element invisible
element = "Start": button to start/stop the simulation
element = "AddButton": button to add sources
element = "DeleteButton": button to select a source to delete
element = "ShowButton": button to show / hide the sources from screen
