ANALYSIS:QUESTION 1What is the temperature of the water once it has reached equilibrium with the air? Transfer this number to the appropriate column in Table 1.20 degrees CelsiusQUESTION 2What is the frequency of the tuning fork? (This should be printed on the fork). Transfer this frequency to Table 1.384 HZQUESTION 3What is the distance that results in the loudest sound?22.5 CMQUESTION 4What is the calculated wavelength? (Transfer this number to Table 1)wavelength= 4(L + 0.3d)= 4[0.225 + 0.3 (0.02)] = 0.924m[DOCUMENT TITLE]
Lab reportRichard ElliotQUESTION 5What is the estimated measurement of the speed of sound? (Transfer this number to Table 1).Speed of sound = wavelength * frequency= 0.924 X 984 = 354.816 m/sQUESTION 6What is the theoretical speed of sound? (Transfer your number to Table 1).V= (331 + 0.60t) m/s = 331 + (0.60 X 20)= 343 m/sQUESTION 7Calculate the % of error between the experimentally estimated and the calculated speed of sound.% of error = [(350-343) / 350] X 100%= 2%Table 1- Experimental data for determining speed of soundWater/air temp (Celsius)Frequency tuning forkin HzLength from top of tube towater (L)Inner diameter of resonancetubeWavelengthEstimatedspeed of soundTheoretical speed of sound% error20 degrees384 HZ22.5 cm2 cm0.924wavelength350 m/s343 m/s2%QUESTION 8Are you satisfied with your % of error that you achieved in this experiment? If you, you may want to repeat this experiment with a different water recipient, etc. until you obtain numbers with which you are satisfied.Surprisingly I am very satisfied with my percentage of error. I feel as though this lab experiment went beter than my Lab 5.Conclusion:I actually enjoyed the last lab of the course. It went fairly well and wasn’t difficult at all. The purpose was to learn how sound travels by measuring the speed of sound in air using the resonance of longitudinal waves and I was successful. I accomplished this by measuring the sound level crated by striking a tube submerged in water with a tuning fork and then moving the tube vertically. I learned the denser the material, the faster sound will travel through it.[DOCUMENT TITLE]
