 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 = xmcos ωx t      and the y motion is y = ymsin ωy t + δ      The parameters xm, ωx, ymy and δ can be changed using the scrollbars.
