video - Resonance Wire Ring
Purpose:Demonstrates the concept of the natural or resonant frequency of a vibrating system. In particular, shows how the resonant frequency of a ring depends on its radius.
Hook up the resonance wire ring to PASCO mechanical oscillator which is driven by our PASCO function generator. At around 20Hz (depending on the ring radius) the ring will oscillate quite visibly.
