Visualizing Doppler Effect using ripple tanks

Ripple tanks are really cool ways to explore the way a wave behaves under the influence of a perturbation. They are fairly simple to make, and are usually available in college and school laboratories to render better understanding of the wave phenomenon. How does it work ?                    Source There is a usually an oscillating paddle( above– used to produce plane waves) or a point source/s ( below – used to produce circular waves ) which are actuated by eccentric…
