The Physics Teacher
written by Lutz Kasper, Patrik Vogt, and Christine Strohmeyer
published by the American Association of Physics Teachers
The opportunity to plot oscillograms and frequency spectra with smartphones creates many options for experiments in acoustics, including several that have been described in this column. The activities presented in this paper are intended to complement these applications, and include an approach to determine sound velocity in air by using standard drain pipes and an outline of an investigation of the temperature dependency of the speed of sound.
