Didactic tool (Language: English)
From the programme, and through the Help button you can access the explanation of the basic physical concepts handled in the programme y several modellings are proposed for each module, passing the numerical values directly into the programme. From the help it is also possible to view several AVI videos that represent the evolution over time of wave phenomena.
