Activity: Sound waves

IB Physics: Activity: Sound waves

Introduce sound as a longitudinal wave.Investigate the wave nature of sound.Derive the equations for the harmonic frequencies of standing waves in pipes.Measure the speed of sound.When air is disturbed it causes a change in pressure which in turn disturbs the surrounding air resulting in propagation of changing pressure throughout the medium. This can be simulated using Algodoo.In the simulation you can see the disturbance...
