29 Experiment 5 Velocity of sound Apparatus: Audio frequency generator, speaker, microphone, Cathode Ray Oscilloscope (CRO), meter scale, large board (or wall), Thermometer (0-100 0 C) Purpose of experiment: i) To determine the Velocity of Sound ii) To understand the operation of a CRO Basic methodology: Sound waves produced by an audio frequency generator are made to reflect off a large reflecting board forming standing waves. A microphone connected to a CRO serves to measure the amplitude of the sound. The wavelength of sound waves is obtained from the positions of the nodes. I. Introduction: I.1. Standing waves are produced when two progressive sinusoidal waves of the same amplitude and wavelength interfere with each other. Consider two traveling waves traveling along the positive and negative x directions respectively ) t kx ( sin A ) t , x ( y 1 ω - = ------------------------- (1) ) t kx ( sin A ) t , x ( y 2 ω + = ------------------------- (2) where A is the amplitude of the waves, k = 2 ° ± is the wave number and ² = 2 ° f is the angular frequency. The quantity y(x,t) is the displacement of the medium at

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
