The versatile apparatus is used for studying the concepts of wave motion and can be used as a demonstration model with an overhead projector. With four legs attached to the underside of the tank, it can also be used as a freestanding bench model. A gantry is supplied for supporting a motor beam the height of which is adjustable for best experimental observations and results. Ripples are produced by a small 3 to 4.5 V DC motor mounted on the plastic beam. A cam fitted to the motor spindle produces oscillations which leads to ripples in water in the tank. The complete set of apparatus comprises:
A. Ripple tank 45455cm (approx) (overall dimensions).
B. Gantry complete with beam 4.5 V DC motor fittings.
C. Screw in legs for bench mounting.
D. Illuminant assembly with illuminant, support rods & bosses.
E. Spherical dippers
F. Glass plate and spacers for refractions.
H. Suspension bands
I. Leveling wedges
J. Image Screen with Projection Mirror
K. Power supply with 2 outputs – 12V AC for illuminant and 0-4.5V variable DC for rippler motor.
