A very cool experiment that turns water into a sine wave

imageUsing the power of sound, and the flexibility of water, Brussups was able to create a really cool experiment that turns flowing water into a sine wave. The sine wave is not visible to the naked eye, but using a camera that shoots 24 frames per second, the sine wave is able to be seen.

Run the rubber hose down past the speaker so that the hose touches the speaker. Leave about 1 or 2 inches of the hose hanging past the bottom of the speaker. Secure the hose to the speaker with tape or whatever works best for you. The goal is to make sure the hose is touching the actual speaker so that when the speaker produces sound (vibrates) it will vibrate the hose.

Set up your camera and switch it to 24 fps. The higher the shutter speed the better the results. But also keep in the mind that the higher your shutter speed, the more light you need. Run an audio cable from your computer to the speaker. Set your tone generating software to 24hz and hit play.Turn on the water. Now look through the camera and watch the magic begin. If you want the water to look like it’s moving backward set the frequency to 23hz. If you want to look like it’s moving forward in slow motion set it to 25hz.

    Some really cool stuff. Remind me of something I’d used to see on Bill Nye The Science Guy.

    This is so cool! Science is just mind-blowing sometimes, I mean this person is actually using the power of sound to...
