Science Quotations

I do not know what I may appear to the world, but to myself I seem to have been only a boy playing on the sea-shore, and diverting myself in now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me.

-- Sir Isaac Newton

AM and FM Interactive Resources

Try these interactive resources for investigating how Amplitude Modulation (AM) and Frequency Modulation (FM) works....








The following resources require Java to be installed o­n your computer. Java Software is avaiablefor downloading at  http://www.java.com/en/download/manual.jsp

Some of these resources go well beyond the requirementsfor GCSE. However, the visual effects/demonstrations can be very useful for reinforcing the principoles of AM and FM

AM/FM  This applet covers both AM and FM using the modulating signal, alongside the  modulated carrier wave. Straightforward demonstration   Applet 1

The following applets may also be useful at GCSE although some are more complex than required at this level.

Amplitude Modulation   Applet 1   Applet 2   Applet 3   Applet 3

Frequency Modulation    Applet 1    Applet 2
