Transverse Wave - Segment

 Applet shows the variation of slope of a segment of a rope as a wave passes through it. The segment is shown in red color. The extension of the segment is shown in some arbitray units. For comparision the segment's unstretched length is 72 units. Notice the maximum slope and stretch when the segment is passing through the equilibrium postion. The effect of increased amplitude on the slope is also observable.
