Description

The aim of the experiment P1.6.2.1 is to explicitly confirm the relationship

between the wavelength λ, the frequency f and the phase velocity v. A stopclock is used to measure the time t required for any wave phase to travel a given distance s for different wavelengths; these values are then used to calculate the phase velocity

The wavelength is then “frozen” using the built-in brake, to permit measurement of the wavelength λ. The frequency is determined from the oscillation period measured using the stopclock.
When the recommended experiment configuration is used, it is possible to demonstrate all significant phenomena pertaining to the propagation of linear transversal waves. In particular, these include the excitation of standing waves by means of reflection at a fixed or loose end.
