When two or more wave moving through the same region of space,
Wave maintain their integrity upon overlapping (without themselves being permanently changed).
Press the -/+ button: change the direction of green wave.
two waves with same frequency and amplitude but opposite direction ==> standing wave.
What if two wave with different amplitude?
Frequency: enter frequency f for blue/yellow waves,
Wave is not necessary moves with the same speed.
We can calculate wave speed v = f*λ
Waves with two different wavelength produce beats phenomenon. (sample GIF picture)
