Velocity of Sound Apparatus

Item no.: XWV810010 Description This dual purpose apparatus provides a compact facility for the measurement of the velocity of sound in air and also for the analysis of standing waves. It requires an audio signal generator and a dual beam oscilloscope with power being provided by a PP3 9V battery. To make a direct measurement of

Maxwellian velocity distribution

Item no.: P2320300 Principle By means of the model apparatus for kinetic theory of gases the motion of gas molecules is simulated and the velocities determined by registration of the throw distance of the glass balls. This velocity distribution is compared to the theoretical Maxwell- Boltzmann equation. Tasks Measure the velocity distribution of the “model
