A resonance apparatus is used in the demonstration of standing waves. It can be used to observe the resonance phenomena, the speed of sound in air by exploiting standing waves, resonance effects in longitudinal waves, and resonance points for a certain frequency and their relation with the standing wavelength. Partially fill the resonance tube with water and then sound a tuning fork of known frequency at the tubes open upper end of the Resonance Tube. The water level can be adjusted until the air in the tube resonates at the same frequency as the tuning fork which increases the volume of the sound.
Our Resonance Apparatus - Essentials has a graduated resonance tube (#1803-6), a funnel, and a connective length of tubing attached to a sturdy base and a support rod via two clamps.
