Singing Tube Demonstration

firewatch

Publication 10568

Price: FREE

Mysteriously play an organ pipe without an organ! This demonstration uses heated air to produce vibrations inside a long tube. The vibrations, in turn, produce standing sound waves with a unique tone, or timbre (tӑmʹ br)—the same concept that produces sound from an organ pipe.
