**Lissajous Figures**

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 &omega_{x}t and the y motion is y = y_{m}sin &omega_{y}t + &delta The parameters x_{m}, &omega_{x}, y_{m},&omega_{y}and &delta can be changed using the scrollbars.
