10-6. Longitudial Pulse on a Chain of Masses and Springs

 

Figure 10-6. A longitudinal pulse propagating down a chain of masses connected by springs. Note the interchange of potential and kinetic energies between springs and masses. Kinetic energy is carried by a moving mass; potential energy is stored when a spring is compressed or extended.
