Speed of Sound Lab Report
Abstract
The purpose of this experiment is to determine the effective length of a tube with one closed end where
resonance occurs for a variety of tuning forks. The wavelength of the standing wave for each tuning
fork and resonance tube should be determined which in turn will give a way to calculate the speed of
sound.
Materials
The resonance tube with the length scale marked on it.
Tuning forks ranging from 500 Hz to 1040 Hz with a rubber hammer
Thermometer to measure air temperature
Theory
The relationship between speed, frequency and wavelength is v=ƒλ. Therefore, we can determine the
speed of a wave if we know it's frequency and wavelength. Using tuning forks with a defined
frequency and a resonance tube with a length scale marked on it, we can find these two elements and
determine the speed of sound.
The resonance tube contains water and the level of the water in the tube moves up and down with the
wavelength. Standing waves are produced when waves travel in both directions in the tube and are
reflected from the closed end of the tube, completely out of phase with the incident wave.
Speed is also equal to distance / time, so a fast sound wave can travel a longer distance than a slow
sound wave.
Procedure
1. Measure the room temperature and record it.
2. Adjust the water level in the tube so that the can is ...
