Background and hypothesis: the cover sheet of this lab gives the speed of sound a value of 330 m/s therefore, the theoretical value that can be expected to be inferred from this lab can be 330 m/s to find this value the relationship v = f x λ can be used. After conducting our experiment and calculated our data, we found out that the speed of sound for the lab was only 10005m/s, which is the experimental value but the actual speed of sound should be 340m/s, which is the accepted value. 01/02 speed of sound - 2 the following figure shows a schematic of the setup note that the distance between the speaker and microphone can be changed by pulling out or pushing in the plunger. For my physics lab, we have to calculate the speed of sound through steel and aluminum based on an experiment we did using a microphone and a program called logger pro the resulting graphs gave the frequency of the sound of the aluminum rod as 210938 hz, and the frequency of the sound of the steel. Speed of sound in air at 0 c is 3315 m/s and increases by 06 m/s for each degree of temperature increase for example, at 20 c, the speed of sound is 3435 m/s.
Sound also propagates with a speed which depends on the nature of the material through which the sound is passing, but to a high degree, the speed of the sound is independent of the frequency f, of the sound. Speed of sound lab report jamie cook phys 1114: college physics i oklahoma city community college december 10, 2013 purpose: the purpose of this experiment is to measure the speed of sound in air and to determine the effects of frequency on the speed of sound. Speed of sound lab report samantha mackey 13 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 soundprocedure: 1. Lab 06: the speed of sound in air introduction it is possible to investigate sound waves by creating standing waves in a column of air if the air column is the speed of sound waves in gases depends on the type of gas and on the temperature for air it is: where t is the temperature in °c record the air temperature, and use it to. A sound wave is a pressure disturbance that travels through a medium by means of particle-to-particle interaction as one particle becomes disturbed, it exerts a force on the next adjacent particle, thus disturbing that particle from rest and transporting the energy through the medium.
University of tennessee chattanooga physics 1030l lab 2/06/2013 physics 1030l laboratory measuring the speed of sound in air using a resonance tube objective: the purpose of this experiment is to measure the speed of sound in air by exploiting standing wave and resonance effects in longitudinal waves.
