This project has three parts, the first part to be done at home, the last two parts in class. In the home part we recall how to solve second order, linear, differential equations with constant coefficients and simple source functions. In the first in-class part we analyze the solutions found at home and try to understand what is a resonant solution, the beats phenomenon, and how both arise. The last in-class part is to apply the beats phenomenon to send an audible tone across the Atlantic Ocean using radio waves.
