Description of Sim:
Link to the sim: http://phet.colorado.edu/en/simulation/wave-on-a-string
On first load, the screen shows a string of beads attached to a wrench on the left side and attached / anchored to a clamp on the right side.
The wrench can be moved up and down with the mouse which causes a wave to travel across the string to the opposite end. The wave will rebound back.
Other controls on the sim modify the behaviour of the wave - “damping” and “tension”.
You can change the right anchoring to be “fixed”, “loose” and “no end”
You can also change the wrench control scheme from “manual”, oscillate, and pulse.
