Titel How can sound waves cause a window to shake?
Beschreibung This activity supports investigations into the phenomenon in OpenSci Ed's Unit 8.2: How can sound make something move? In the activity, students observe how particle motion changes when amplitude and frequency of sound waves change. In addition, students track pressure as a result of these changing particle motions and infer how those pressure changes could cause an object far from the sound source to move.
