- Purpose: Demonstrate resonance and measure speed of sound.
- Two different resonance tubes are shown above.
For Smaller Tube
- Strike tuning fork on rubber pad; place fork near larger
opening of tube; slide inner tube in and out until resonance is heard. Use
tube length and frequency to determine speed of sound.
For larger Tube
- Use speaker and function generator to find resonant frequency
of tube. Once resonance is found, use vernier microphone to locate nodes and
anti-nodes.Use tube length and frequency to determine speed of sound.
