Introduction
Wave is an oscillation accompanied by a transfer of energy that travels through medium (space or mass)
Waves consist, instead, of oscillations or vibrations (of a physical quantity), around almost fixed locations
This simulation is on transverse wave where disturbance creates oscillations that are perpendicular to the propagation of energy transfer.
The equation for wave is A sin ( wt +kx + ϕ)
where
A is the maximum amplitude of the wave, maximum distance from the highest point of the disturbance in the medium (the crest) to the equilibrium point during one wave cycle.
w is is the angular frequency
t is time
k is is the wavenumber
x is the position
ϕ is the is the phase constant

concepts illustrated in the simulations include
T is the time for one complete cycle of an oscillation of a wave
f is the number of periods per unit time (per second) and is related by T = 1/f
λ is the wavelength
v is the velocity of the wave travelling and is related by v= f λ
vtmax is the maximum transverse velocity of the wave particle that occurs at the displacement d =0.
