PhysicsLAB Lab
Speed of Sound in Air

Data: Record the resonance positions in centimeters
and the number of your tuning fork

fork # 

resonance position #1 (in cm) 

resonance position #2 (in cm) 

Now choose the correct waveform showing the
resonance pattern you "heard" while completing
this lab.

Room temperature (in ºC) 

Calculated speed of sound (in m/sec) 

Length of a loop (in cm) 

Calculated wavelength (in m) 

Calculated frequency of fork (in hz) 

Error Analysis:
Actual frequency stamped on fork (in hz) 

Percent error
