LAB 3: STANDING WAVE

EXPLORE STANDING WAVE IN STRING

I. Learning Objectives

1. Explore transverse wave of a string.

2. Transverse wave generation is a function that depend to the drive frequency f.

3. Define the velocity of wave transmission.

II. Theory:

Velocity of wave transmission relates with frequency f and wave-length by formula:

v . f

- v is the velocity of wave or phase velocity. v depends on the strain (do cang) of string and some other parameter.

When 2 opposite of string connect fixed, the reflection of wave occurs on 2 opposite fixed points on the

string. This makes standing wave appear at one frequency like standing oscilation. Distance between 2

wave nodes or anti-nodes (bung song) in series is half of wave –length. Only wave nodes generate fixed

points. With a standing wave with n anti-nodes in a string which’s length l, we have formula :

l n

(1)

- With n = 1,2,3, …

The frequency of anti-node in string is basic audio frequency Phase velocity v ( wave transmission velocity) is not change, (1) give us frequency of function generator.

4.1 Preparation:

Connect system like this image.

- Fix motor STE to the bearer. Connect its wire line with a function generator.

- Connect a rubber string with 75cm length with the oscilation bar

of motor. Adjust the tight of the string by the position of bearer b. But it’s must not too tight

- Connect function generator with the transformer’s output.

- Use Digital Multi Meter, connect 2 probes of DMM with 2 pole

of voltage output. Adjust DDM to measure frequency mode. - Set the voltage output of function generator U = 3Vpp, frequency x10Hz and in sine wave form.

4.2 Processing.

- Adjust the string length l =75cm by moving the bearer. The string is tight a little.

- Adjust function generator to have a standing wave with only 1 anti-node.

- Increase frequency f step by step until find frequencies which have standing wave with number of anti-nodes n = 1,2,3,4,6. Adjust for the clearest standing waves.

- Measure wave-length and fill to the table.

- Adjust the string length l = 80 cm by moving the bearer. Repeat this experiment with this length.

- Give comments about the relative between frequency of function generator and number os anti- node in the string. Compare with the formula (1)

- Draw diagram of function frequency f n = a.n with n is the number of anti-node. Then calculate a parameter.

- With (2) we have a = v/2l. Then find the frequency of wave transmission in the string in each case.

- Give comments about velocity of wave in each case.

EXPLORE STANDING WAVE IN SPRING

I. Learning Objectives

1. Explore longitudinal wave in a spring.

2. Longitudinal wave generation is a function that depend to the drive frequency f.

3. Define the velocity of wave transmission in spring.

II. Theory:

Explore the oscilation in a spring connect verticaly in bearer, 2 opposite pole connect to fixed points

We have velocity of a oscilation relate with frequency f and wave-length by the formula:

v . f

(1)

v is call velocity of wave or phase velocity. v depends to the tight of spring and the structure of spring.

When the spring connect to 2 fixed points, the reflection wave occurs in these points. Standing wave is

generated in some frequency and look like a longtitidinal oscilation. Node and anti-node is the fixed

position in spring which are fixed compressed and slackened areas. Distnce between 2 node or anti-node

in seri is a half wave-length. In standing wave with n anti-nodes in spring with length l, we have formula:

l n

(1)

2

With n = 1.2.3…

The frequency of anti-node in string is basic audio frequency

Phase velocity v (velocity of wave transmission) is not changed, so (1) give us the frequency of function

generator:

f n

In this experiment, a spring connect vertically in bearer, and is driven to oscillate by a function

generator which is connected to a pole of spring. We can adjust the driven frequency in function generator

IV. Experiment

4.1. Preparation Connect a system like this image

- Connect 1 pole of spring to a higher bearer. Connect other pole to the oscilation generator. Connect oscilation generator to function generator. Keep spring not too tight.

- Set up Function Generator to sine wave and frequency 0Hz.

- Connect 2 probes of DMM to the output of function generator. Change to measure frequency mode.

4.2 Processing

- Turn the function generator on.

- Increase frequency until you have standing wave in spring. A

standing wave is a simplest oscilation with only 1 anti-node. Read and fill this frequency f 1 to table 3. Note: Adjust frequency to has clearest node and anti-node.

- Increase frequency of generator until you have 1 node and 2 anti-nodes in spring. This standing wave has frequency f 2 . Read this value and fill to the table 3

- Increase frequency of generator until you have 2 nodes in the middle of spring. This standing wave has frequency f 3 . Read this value and fill to the table 3

- Increase frequency of generator until you have maximum nodes in the middle of spring. Read this value and fill to the table 3

- Use ruler to measure the length of spring. Write value to table.
