Many methods have been used to measure the veloc- ity of these waves. The Kundt’s tube method com- monly used in student labs will not be discussed here. The rod is clamped at the center to produce a fundamental mode of vibration. This rod has a disk at its one end. That is inserted into the glass tube but it does not.

You could apply a similar technique, and support the rod at both ends, and bow it in the center. Please discuss this issue on the article’s talk page.

Kundt’s tube

These nodes and antinodes may be detected by cork dust placed in the tube, the cork dust showing characteristic striated vibration patterns at the antinodes. Kundt’s method allowed the actual locations kund the nodes to be determined with great accuracy.

If the frequency f of the sound is known, multiplying it by the wavelength gives the speed of sound c in air:. For all warranty replacement, a written statement with an authorized signature indicating the reason for rejection attaching test reports are requested to accompany the returned parts.

Kundt’s Tube Apparatus

We collect general sales tax on shipments, unless the purchaser supplies us a signed official sales tax exemption certificate with the order. For our optical components, our warranty is 30 days from the date of shipment. Insert the stopper in the end of the tube. At the ends of the tube, there are metal fittings.


Defective items will be replaced free of cost. The dead giveaway that tells you when Amazon has the best price. Retrieved from ” https: Our warranty for all our mechanical components and systems are ONE year from the vbiration of shipment. The result should be that the note is an octive higher. This article’s lead section does not adequately summarize key points of its contents.

The feedback you provide will help us show you more relevant content in the future. It is important to make sure the disk is not touching the glass becuause the vibrations set up in the rod will break the glass.

Exp.3 Kundt’s Tube – The Speed of Sound in Metals

Fluid Dynamics for Physicists. How is the behavior of metal dielectric constant and frequency? The whole apparatus is tightly clamped on a table, so that there will be no jerks on the tube during the experiment. A long glass tube, piston, metal rod, powdered cork, ruler, clamps and leather piece.

Many frequencies will be produced one of which will be a fundamental frequency.

Longitudinal Waves – Kundt’s Tube

When the rod is vibrating in this manner it is vibrating with its fundamental frequency and the wavelength of the standing wave is twice the length of the rod. All quotations are rube for 90 days from the date of issue. Furthermore, it provides an insight into the interesting phenomenon of standing sound waves.


In a solid such as a metal rod, sound can be transmitted either by longitudinal or transverse waves. What kind of charge is on a rod of ebonite if rubbed with silk? An AC voltage applied to the loudspeaker, tunes the membrane to vibrations that are transferred to the gas or air column. Head Phone Model No: We thank you for taking time to visit our website and await for an opportunity to be at your service in near future.

Any waves traveling along the medium will reflect back when they reach the end creating a standing wave allowing harmonics to be identified.

A Textbook of Vibrxtion Gripping the rod with the rosined leather, pull toward the end of the rod. The apparatus consists of a long transparent horizontal pipe G, which contains a fine powder such as cork dust or talc. The friction will induce a sound in the resonance of the class’s resonance. Can we produce nano metallic foam?

A cylindrical tube open at both ends, has a fundamental frequency f. Measure the length of the metal rod and using the measured frequency of vibraation sound compute the velocity of sound in the metal rod.

The reason would be that the fundamental frequency is generally the easiest to produce.
