Lab Report on waves Properties

Table of Contents

Abstract #

This lab is based on the waves. The main objective is to find the waves properties with a medium. The wave’s type is distinguished through wave direction which travels itself and direction of particles moving through the wave. The experiments have the equipment and some requirements. An interrelationship is determined between velocity, wavelength and frequency. The transverse waves have the direction away from the source with medium particles carry wave which is perpendicular to the traveling wave. The experiments show the traveling and interfere with the wave. The longitudinal waves travel from disturbance source and medium particles are parallel displaced to travel waves. The different types of waves also include standing waves which is not necessarily to be created by interference pattern. The traveling waves have different wavelengths of each wave’s type. The standing waves include the vibration in which points get remain fixed and others vibrate with maximum amplitude. The waves are characterized by the particle motion that is perpendicular to the wave motion. The waves which have particles of medium to move in a parallel direction towards the direction where waves move. The experiments show the wave equation with wave velocity and wave frequency. The experimental methods have the procedure of the longitudinal waves with different frequencies. Each equation that are used in the study gives different results for forming a wave. The relationship between the speed, frequency, and wavelength of the wave propagation. It is mentioned that sound propagates in a longitudinal wave. Wave propagation speed depends on the transmitting wave’s medium. The table is also given which shows the speed of the sound in the air which further calculate on temperature which is theoretically based. The equipment requirement has all the related tools. The tables of data summary and tuning of forks show different results of experiments with different frequencies of tuning forks. The result shows by the comparison of the experimental value with the percentage error.

Conclusion #

The experiments show the results of the values with theoretical velocities and also mentioned percentage error. The speed of the sounds explains in speaker volume and size. The experimental frequency and velocity find the errors with the wavelength of the wave. It shows that wave speed usually depends on the tension. The frequency is increasing gradually which shows the mode shapes.  Their frequency should be adjusted after n=1. The multiplier defines the wavelength of the experiment. The equations are used in the calculation. This lab experiment is for determining the properties of waves a their relationship with their wavelength, frequency, and velocity. The experimental results are compared with the theoretical data.
