Ok thanks. Are they the supersonic kind?
In that case, is it correct to say that while the pressure increases by large increments, the displacement amplitude (units of length) only...
The proof was basically staring at me right in the face. :DD
I managed to figure out how it works :smile:
What happens when we reach that situation with air in real life?
When there are no waves, the lines are evenly spaced, with a default spacing width.
Now a longitudinal wave starts. The frequency and wavelength...
hmm, do you have a link to the mathematical proof?
I'm quite confused about this part:
Check out the formulae in Hyperphysics and Wikipedia
We see that:...
Ok, I'd assumed that the bars were just lines of zero thickness.
But when they oscillate at a large enough amplitude, in the simulation, they...
Are you referring to the width of each bar or the spacings between the bars?
This animation demonstrates a longitudinal wave by means of moving bars.
I realized that if we increase the amplitude of the wave, the...
oh no how am i supposed to sleep tonight.
what kind of system are you referring to?
you won't see the fringes no more
bump in case someone who knows is around
I think the answer lies in the energy loss die to evanescent waves.
I managed to find this page:...
Unfortunately, I can't apply Frustrated TIR as the scenario I have in mind has only one block of dielectric, not two.
Also, interesting that your...
that sounds quite bizarre. do you have any links that describe this phenomenon in more detail?
It does involve the geometry of a spring though. The spring's unique geometry allows it to create the illusion, which other objects might not be...
do you know of any formula that would describe the energy loss for reflection within PMMA or glass etc?
The trick depends on the mathematical geometry, which I think that's what the OP was looking for, a "physics" approach, and also the smooth and...
true, but from my experience, the reflections do play a major role.
for example, when reflecting in a bar of similar dimensions as shown in the...
but in the real world when you conduct experiments with let's say PMMA, the beam does get weaker with every reflection.
I also mentioned...
Why the hell are you guys talking about perception, biology and neurology? hahaha
this is so simple. Describe a helical shape mathematically....
damn daemons, they always disappear in a laboratory setting, that's why we can't scientifically conduct experiments on ghosts :wink:
When a laser beam reflects during total internal reflection, how much of its intensity is lost?
I can't the use Fresnel equations as this is for...
depends on what kind of work you want it to do
i need magnetron specifics though
