Lab #26.1 Sound: Slow Motion Wobbler

Sound

Purpose
In this activity, students will observe and explore the oscillation of a tuning fork.

Discussion
The tines of a tuning fork oscillate at a very precise frequency. That's why musicians use them to tune instruments. In this activity, you will investigate their motion with a special illumination system— a stroboscope.
