Absorb Advanced Physics by Adrian Watt

The principles of ultrasound imaging

Added by Adrian Watt on Mar 31, 2008

An interactive animation illustrating the principles behind the use of ultrasound imaging. A sound wave is emitted, reflected from two metal plates and then detected, with the result shown as a trace on an oscilloscope. Use the slider to move the first metal plate and observe the resulting trace.

This resource is from the unit Reflection which is part of Absorb Advanced Physics.
