An Acoustic Method for the Determination of Avogadro's Number
Houari, Ahmed
Physics Education, v46 n4 p395-397 Jul 2011
To diversify the measurement techniques of Avogadro's number in physics teaching, I propose a simple acoustic method for the experimental determination of Avogadro's number based only on the measurement of the speed of sound in metals, provided that their Debye temperatures are known.
