Unformatted text preview: V=344.6 Percent % 348.2 m/s – 344.6 m/s)/ 344.6= 1.044% V= F (Frequency) x Λ (wave length) Frequency= 1/s=Hz-Hertz F=512 Conclusion The experimental value is 348 m/s and the percent error is 1.0447%. The frequency and wavelength differed on the third test. Also, many other factors made the error. The change in time it took for the person sliding the water down differed which caused a different time in which the sound was made. There could have also been a change in temperature from the time the experiment started until the end of the experiment. Other sources of error that may have caused this percent error are inaccurate measure of time the sound was heard and inaccurate calculations that were made...
