Wa-2 Phase and Group Velocity
Published: Tuesday 14 March 2006 - Updated: Wednesday 30 March 2011
To demonstrate the difference between phase and group velocity.
- 4 channel C.R.O
- 2 Signal generators

Two signal generators are connected to separate channel inputs on the four channel C.R.O. The third channel contains the sum of the two signals via the isolating resistors. If the two frequencies of the oscillators are approximately equal the resulting waveforms adequately demonstrate the phase and group velocity of the packet.
