published by the Physics Education Technology Project
Students gain understanding of electromagnetic radiation as they broadcast radio waves from a transmitter to receiver.  They can manually control the transmitter electron or set automatic oscillation.  The field can be displayed as a curve or vectors, with students controlling the frequency and amplitude. This item is part of a larger collection of simulations developed by the Physics Education Technology project (PhET). The simulations are animated, interactive, and game-like environments.
