Complete Ripple Tank Apparatus

This ripple tank is transparent, acrylic plastic and supported in a sturdy plastic frame.

  • Large Viewing Area
  • Frame Can Hold Four Legs
  • Shaped Tank Edges Minimize Undesired Reflections
  • Motor: 4—6VDC
  • Motor's Eccentric Weight Causes Beam to Oscillate
The frame has recesses to hold four legs with leveling feet. The tank has a drain hole closed by a rubber stopper, and the tank edges are shaped to minimize undesired reflections. Two light alloy uprights carry a horizontal ripple support rod, which is adjustable for height. The ripple assembly, elastically suspended from the support rod, consists of a 4—6VDC motor mounted on a wooden beam. The motor has an eccentric weight that causes the beam to oscillate.

Two plastic spheres provide point sources. A metal rod is fixed centrally into a socket in one short side of the frame to afford support to the illuminant.

Ordering information: This kit includes two straight obstacles of aluminum alloy, length 130 mm; one straight obstacle, length 40 mm; one curved reflector, radius 200 mm; one trapezoidal plastic plate for refraction; one wood hand wave roller; one water dropper; one pack of rubber bands; one foam plastic sponge; and one illuminant with a 12V, 24W lamp mounted in a lamp house and provided with a long supporting rod, which can be attached to a retort stand. A 4—6VDC power supply and connecting wires are required but not included.
