Unformatted text preview: We compared two frequency between the sound generated from a speaker and a tuning fork. These two sound waves were recorded simultaneously. The measured data shows alternating regions of constructive and destructive interference. These periodic variations in the amplitude of the wave pattern is the beat of the two different frequencies. If we find the frequency of the speaker and the frequency of the tuning fork and subtract them we will obtain the frequency of beats. We also observed that as you increase the tension force the frequency calculated increases....
