Part B: Resonance Data Vibration Type Frequency (Hz) Inner Tube Length (m) n λ (m) Velocity (m/s) RE (%) Low 480 0.166 1 0.664 319 7.29 Medium 480 0.530 3 0.707 339 1.48 Calculations: Equation for the velocity of sound waves in air Discussion: In part A of the lab, the tuning fork produced expected results for the amplitude and frequency of the two forks. The frequency of the fork was not dependent on how hard the fork was struck, while the amplitude was correlated with the striking force. The monochord produced interesting results as well. With the monochord, the method of use affected both amplitude and frequency.

### 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.
