The Singing Rod (in the Modern Age)
Lasby, B.; O'Meara, J. M.; Williams, M.
Physics Teacher, v52 n2 p86-87 Feb 2014
This is a classic classroom demonstration of resonance, nodes, anti-nodes, and standing waves that has been described elsewhere. The modern age twist that we are advocating is the coupling of this classic demo with free (or relatively inexpensive) sound analysis software, thereby allowing for quantitative analysis of resonance while experimenting with a number of important variables.
