Goals: There were three main goals of this lab, the first being to understand the concepts of both standing waves and resonance, the second being to calculate the velocity by measuring frequency and wavelength, the last being to calculate velocity of a wave by measuring tension in the cord and determining mass per unit length. Procedure: The procedure for this lab can be found in the Summer COOP 2009 Physics II Lab manual on pages 43-49.

Analysis: Explanation of Uncertainties: When measuring the mass of the bungee cord the uncertainty was recorded as 1.0 g because we were able to measure the mass accurately to the gram. When measuring the length of the bungee cord the uncertainty was 0.01 m, this was due to the fact that we could read the ruler accurately to 0.01 of a meter. The uncertainty for the tension was calculated using the high-low method, using this method an uncertainty of 0.01 was
