Chladni Experiment Plate Kit

Scientist Ernst Chladni was a pioneer of experimental acoustics and vibration research. Most notably, Chladni invented a technique to demonstrate the motions of vibrating plates, aiding studies in waves and sound.

The Chladni Plate Experiment Kit enables you to perform this demonstration yourself, ideal for use in physics experiments. 

When sprinkled with a fine, dry powder such as sand, the metal Chladni plate can exhibit patterns so that the user can visualise the effects of vibrations. These acoustically excited patterns are formed when the plate is connected to the vibration generator.

Your kit comes complete with a choice of square or circular Chladni plate, for variations in pattern formations. The Vibration Generator and Chladni Plate Kit makes a great addition to your physics lab, ideal for allowing students to visualise waves and sounds in a fun, practical way.
