Abstract

MACH'S model for illustrating the transversal as well as the longitudinal wave is known to work in a beautiful manner. The arrangement for exciting the wave-motion is not, however, very simple. The fact that the period of a pendulum varies with the length of the string may conveniently be availed of for producing a wave-motion in a row of pendulum-bobs.
