TWO DIMENSIONAL WAVE PROPAGATION: CHLADNI PATTERNS<br />
(1 of 2 - Variations Available)<br />
Pattern of Off-Center Round At Frequency of 300 Hz<br />
An off-center round chladni plate sprinkled with sand is vibrated by a sine wave generator at a frequency of 800 Hz.  A symmetrical pattern forms over its surface as the sand gathers at the nodes and vibrates away from the antinodes of the wave.
