Students will learn how sound is produced and how it travels through the air to then register a signal in the brain.
Learn about wave harmonics on a string by looking closely at the sound produced by a violin.
Learn about wave harmonics in a column of air by looking closely at the sound produced by a pan flute.
Demonstrates how sound perception changes with position, frequency, and volume.
A tuning fork's vibrations are filmed in slow motion.
A list of student-submitted discussion questions for Sound.
This study guide gives an overview of mechanical waves and the characteristics of transverse waves and longitudinal waves. It also looks at wave interaction: interference (constructive and destructive), beat frequency, standing wave, resonance, and the Doppler effect.
