Strings and Pipes

Stationary waves A stationary wave is formed when two equal progressive waves are superposed on one another when travelling in opposite directions. About the middle of the nineteenth century a German professor of physics called Franz Melde devised a method of demonstrating transverse stationary waves in a string. One end of a string passes over a pulley and is …

To investigate the relation between the frequency of a stretched string and its length (f x : 1/I)

To investigate the relation between the frequency of a stretched string and its length (f x : 1/I) For this experiment several different tuning forks are required together with a sonometer fitted with a length of thin steel piano wire. The experiment is begun by adjusting the tension so that the length of the wire is as …
