Sample Text:
You will then be making use of this to calculate the speed of sound in air. This investigation is designed to give you an understanding of: • Resonance • Standing waves in air columns • End effects Aim: To find the fundamental frequency of an air column by using different frequency sound signals and calculate the speed of sound in air. Equipment Assemble this equipment before you start the exercise: • A bucket/tall container • A ruler • A cardboard/PVC tube around 4 cm in diameter and at least 20 cm long (the center of a roll of paper towel or wrapping paper is perfect or you could use a section of PVC piping) • A computer/ipad like device/iphone like device with access to the internet • A set of headphones • A camera ________________ Risk...
