Speed of Sound

Students in physical science lab seven measured the speed of sound by synchronizing the clapping of boards with the echo off of a building. Timing a set of multiple claps and measuring the distance the sound traveled out and back permits determinations of the speed of sound.

Breechlyn measures the "echo flight distance."

Josita times, Divine Grace counts, Georgie claps. Other students sitting across the road used hand signals to help the clapper know if they were in synch or not.

Confering on the results.
