The Arbor Scientific Mechanical Wave Value Pack makes harmonic and motion demonstrations affordable for ALL Physics classrooms. Our value pack includes: 24 cm square chladni plate, 24 cm diameter round chladni plate, extra-fine sand and shaker, resonance wire loop, metal resonance strips, longitudinal wave spring, string and string/spring holders.

Chladni Plates:
The first step to Visualize Acoustics! At special frequencies, standing waves appear on the plate, driving the sand away from the points of large vibration to points of no vibrations. Unique patterns are formed at different resonance frequencies becoming increasingly complex and beautiful as the rate of oscillation increases.

Resonance Wire Loop:
Introduce Bohr’s quantum atom using a classic model. The resonance wire loop demonstrates standing wave patterns when vibrated at resonant frequencies.

Metal Resonance Strips
Demonstrate resonant modes as a function of length. As vibration frequency increases, shorter length strips reach resonance and visibly oscillate.

Longitudinal Wave Spring
Experiment with springs, oscillations, and wave theory! A great way to demonstrate and visualize the nodes and antinodes on longitudinal waves.

Required but not included:
Sine Wave Generator P7-2000
Mechanical Wave Driver P7-1000
