Amazing Resonance Experiment

Posted on 2013/06/07 in Fun, Google+, Science & Technology

This is the Chladni plate experiment. The particles (sand, in this case) are arranging themselves along what are called “nodal lines”, narrow curves of motionless calm that criss-cross the otherwise vibrating surface. As the frequency changes, so does the distribution of these nodal lines, which becomes increasingly intricate at higher frequencies.
