I am working on creating a simulation of beats. I need to start with:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

(where w is angular frequency),

w1 + w2 = w1,2

then

w1,2 + w3 = w1,2,3

then

w1,2,3 + w4 = w1,2,3,4

and so on, to create a wave packet where I will plot w1,2,3,4...n.

My problem is that I do not understand how to add the angular frequencies in order to arrive at the resultant frequencies! I have only found equations for amplitude displacement of the sound wave, nothing about adding angular frequencies. And I know that I am not supposed to find the beat frequency.

Any help pointing me in the right direction would be appreciated. Thank you!
