ch to illuminated slicks are arranged behind each other they're attached
to 2 springs so they can vibrate only the horizontal slit is excited to
perform a damped oscillations the light
spot swings vertically the illuminated line is interrupted because of the frequency of the movie camera now only the vertical slit oscillates
now both slits oscillate when
both slits are moved the light spot shifts diagonally upon release a circular oscillation is observed which changes to an elliptic 1 and then to a linear 1 repeat performance the changing form of the vibration results from a small difference in the oscillator frequencies
