### Physics Lab Speed Of Sound In Air

Physics Waves Lab SL Introduction: This lab will investigate the properties of mechanical waves such as a longitudinal wave, focusing on the question: Does a change in the frequency of a wave result in a significant and convincing change in the speed of the wave? Hypothesis: Changing the frequency of the wave will not result in a change in speed because the wavelength will change proportionally as in theory. Student Designed Investigation Procedure/ Planning Procedure: 1. Three...

### Physics Speed of Sound Lab Report

2nd hour PHYSICS LAB REPORT: SPEED OF SOUND Purpose: In this lab, we will be doing 3 major things: 1) Collecting and organizing data to obtain resonant points in a closed pipe, 2) measure the length of a closed-pipe resonator, and 3) analyze the data to determine the speed of sound. Procedure: 1. Fill the graduated cylinder nearly to the top with water, with a tall glass tube open at both ends (the water level with act as the closed end). 2. Determine the room’s air temperature...

### Speed Of Sound Lab

﻿Measuring the Speed of Sound and Air using a Pulse-Echo Technique Purpose To determine the speed of sound in air using the pulse-echo experiment procedure, and comparing it to the predicted speed of sound in air using the measured air temperature of the classroom. Hypothesis I believe that the speed of sound it the air will be close to that of the predicted value. According to our predicted value, we should expect the speed of sound in the air to be at a speed of approximately 346 m/s. Materials...

### Ib Physics Lab Report

Xavier Bourret-Sicotte Physics18/09/2007 Measuring the speed of sound In this experiment, we will measure the speed of sound.The apparatus consisted of a plastic tube filled with water linked to a water container. Thiscontainer could be displaced vertically in order to change the water level. We would thenmake a tuning fork vibrate above the pipe and change the water level until the resonance wasat maximum intensity.Hypothesis: The velocity of sound is 330 ms -1 , the relationship between velocity...

### Speed Of Sound In AirBy James

﻿ Speed of Sound in Air By: James Chen Lab Partner: Jin Zhang and Jake Salpeter Phys 130, Lab section: EE11 TA: Khaled Elshamouty Date of lab: October 29, 2013 Introduction Sound is a longitudinal (compressional) wave caused by a vibrating source. In this experiment, we use standing sound waves created by the tuning forks to determine the speed of sound in air in a tube when it reaches different resonances. In this lab we focused primarily on using standing sound waves (compressional...

### Sound and Speed

﻿SPH3UC – Lesson 1 1. A) Amplitude is the distance between the equilibrium and the maximum displacement. In this wave, it would be from the equilibrium to the top of the crest or bottom of the trough. B) C) Speed: m/s Frequency: Hz D) Speed: because speed is constant and not affected by the change in frequency. Wavelength:0.4 Hz. 2. In transvers waves the motion of the particles is perpendicular to the direction of the energy. In longitudinal waves it they are parallel...
