equipment. This type of testing is needed to measure frequencies that may cause damage to important electronic equipment such as cell phones, computers, lighting, and even aircraft electronics. In this experiment the signal-to-noise ratio ranged from 1.58 to 2.78 for a large fan and 1.74 to 2.32 for a small fan . Background and Objectives Sound is a vibration that travels through an elastic medium as a wave. These waves can be described by the properties such as frequency, period, wavelength, amplitude, and speed. In an anechoic chamber, sound waves are suppressed from the outside and inside of the room, excluding the noise that the equipment tested is producing. The student was able to use an instrument that measured the sound levels of fan modules in the chamber. The measurements taken were used to calculate the signal to noise ratio of each fan.
