Using Wind Chimes to Introduce the Physics Course.
Harris, Robert W.
Physics Teacher, v38 n4 p218-19 Apr 2000
Describes an activity in which students determine where wind chime tubes should be supported and struck to give the best tone, then find the frequency of the tubes. This activity can be used to introduce ideas on significant figures, experimental error, types of variation, peer review of results, seeking empirical relationships with data, and testing the relationships found.
