Circular water waves. The waves are overlaid with a diagram showing the peaks and troughs of the waves. Experiments such as this enabled advances in wave theory, with waves (or other periodic motions) being a fundamental feature of many physical phenomena. This illustration is from 'Physique Populaire' (Emile Desbeaux, 1891).
