Ripple Tank Free

A simulation of a ripple tank, or wave tank. Make waves with your finger, or view examples including such wave phenomena as interference, diffraction (single slit, double slit, etc.), refraction, resonance, and the Doppler effect.

There is also a full version available. The full version is optimized for iPad, and also allows you to create and delete objects, save your work, and change color schemes. The free version will run on the iPad, but not at full resolution.
