Scientific tuning forks are designed for acoustic research, sound wave analysis, and calibration standards.
- Examine hearing ability
- Packaged in an organized thermocoal box
A tuning fork serves as a useful illustration of how a vibrating object can produce sound. When the tuning fork is hit with a rubber hammer, the tines begin to vibrate. The back and forth vibration of the tines produce disturbances of surrounding air molecules. As the tines continue to vibrate, an alternating pattern of high and low pressure regions are created. These regions are transported through the surrounding air, carrying the sound signal from one location to another.
A set of eight tuning forks Includes 1 each of C-256, D-288, E-320, F-341.3, G-384, A-426.6, B-480, C-512.
