Recording Images Observed Using Ripple Tanks
Auty, Geoff
School Science Review, v99 n368 p95-105 Mar 2018
Diagrams and photographs (or computer simulations) should not replace effective observations of the wave properties that can be illustrated using a ripple tank, but they can provide support when discussing and revising what has been observed. This article explains and illustrates a route towards successful photography, which is much easier with digital cameras than in the days of film. The emphasis is on the photography rather than handling the ripple tank.
