Investigating Sound: Using Open Tubes To Demonstrate Beat Notes part of MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
Open tube resonators of nearly identical length produce sound waves with frequencies very close together. The difference between the two frequenciesy is the beat note frequency heard when two resonators (musical intruments)are slightly out-of-tune.
