Unformatted text preview: Resonance in Air Columns Objective : Use the standing wave condition to set up resonance for sound waves in a tube. Then determine the speed of sound using the data for resonance V wave . Compare result with prediction of accepted model theory. Equipment : 1. 2. Resonance tube apparatus 3. Room thermometer 4. Rubber mallet(or tuning fork activator) 5. Vernier caliper 6. Tuning forks(various) 7. Meter stick 8. Right-Angle Clamp Procedure : The first thing we did was to place water into the resonance tube apparatus. Using the rubber hit the tuning fork which created a frequency. While the fork is vibrating, place the fork 1 cm above the rube so that the waves created into the tube. After adjust the water level to find the first resonance and record the high of there the water level was. Repeat this process for all the forks even the unknown tuning fork. Once that is finished use the tuning forks again to find the 2 nd resonance including the unknown tuning fork. Once that procedure is finished, measure the inner diameter of the apparatus with a Vernier caliper. fork....
