Vibrating Plate

Vibrating Plate

Freq Freak:
Explore the visual effects of sound vibrations with Chladni Plates  Use physics to create patterns on a vibrating plate. How is this like a guitar string or a singing wine glass, an experiment to visualize the effect resonant vibration has on an object. The so-called  Chladni Plates
are still one of the most visually striking experiments in physics that can be performed without a face shield. A modified speaker with a metal plate attached to it has an standard music amplifier for power and an I-Pad with a signal generating software for pure frequencies. The program starts with a rubric to discuss what students expect to see and experience, and finishes with a closing rubric and Free discussion of the effects, good and bad, of vibration.
