Powerpoint Slides


The purpose of this website is to provide instructions in creating a Chladni Plate, which was first created by Ernst Chladni in 1680. This website also provide educational material that could be used complementary to the current (2020) BC curriculum. It goes over the basic wave properties and behavior such as the idea of superposition and standing wave, which explains why and how the Chladni Plate behaves the way it does. The "Demo of the plate" page also provide video of Chladni Plate being played for those who cannot buildt the plate.
This website is created as part of the final presentation for a UBC course, PHYS 420.
