  • Phenomena of reflection, refraction, interference and diffraction can be clearly demonstrated
  • Wavelength, velocity and frequency can be easily illustrated
  • Variety of wave patterns can be produced using wave generators and reflectors
  • Bottom of tank is a single sheet of optically clear, distortion-free plate glass measuring 18 in. (45.7cm) on a side
  • Hardwood legs come with screw-adjustable feet
  • Heavy-gauge styrene benches (25 × 25 in./63.5 × 63.5cm) form the perimeter of the tank and dampen reflections
  • Legs and vertical light support are removable for easy storage
