Product Description
This resource is included in the Intro to Waves 5E Lesson with PhET Virtual Lab!

This virtual PhET Wave on a String Lab provides students opportunity to experiment with the various components of waves and the relationships between their anatomy, motion, and energy. It's SO important to see waves in motion to understand them! This virtual lab is a great way to help students to visualize the motion of transverse waves and to give them the opportunity to manipulate waves in order to see the relationships between wavelength, frequency, and wave speed. The lab provides both a guided portion for which students will be given parameters and will be exploring various components of the wave in isolation. They will be guided to calculate the speed of a wave using two different methods. The lab also provides an experimental portion for which students will be attempting to mimic a given wave shapes using the lab platform. Your students will have a blast playing with this simulated wave!

Answer key is included.
