Unformatted text preview: 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 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 - =------------------------- (1) ) t kx ( sin A ) t , x ( y 2 + =------------------------- (2) where A is the amplitude of the waves, k = 2...
