Use the Vernier microphone to display and study the waveforms of sounds from voices and musical instruments. It is also appropriate for speed of sound experiments.

Activities with sound waves:
• Demonstrate how the wave pattern changes when frequency and amplitude are changed
• Compare the waveforms from various musical instruments
• Have students capture the waveform of the sound of a tuning fork and model the sine wave using a function
• Measure the speed of sound by using reflected sound waves in a tube
• Demonstrate beat patterns
• Determine the period and then the frequency of a sound by measuring the time between peaks on the waveform
• Display the fast Fourier transform (FFT) of a sound

• Frequency range: approximately 100Hz to 15kHz
• Power: 1.45mA @ 5VDC
• Stored calibration:
     slope: 1
     intercept: 0 (arbitrary units)
Note: The maximum data-collection rate of the interface affects the maximum frequency you can effectively sample.
