Two oscillations, one along the x axis and the other along the y axis when added result in a two dimensional motion. The path traced is known as Lissajous figures. In the applet the x motion is x = x

_{m}cos ω_{x}t and the y motion is y = y_{m}sin ω_{y}t + δ The parameters x_{m}, ω_{x}, y_{m},ω_{y}and δ can be changed using the scrollbars.Surendranath .B.
