Something For The Weekend: Brusspup Chladni Plate Experiment

Science! We love science, especially when it is brought to us in a fun way. Below is a video by Brusspup in which he performs the Chladni plate experiment. For us it is just cool to see what sound can do, how it shapes certain forms at certain frequencies. Again, just cool!

Brusspup explains: “So this experiment is the Chladni plate experiment. I used a tone generator, a wave driver (speaker) and a metal plate attached to the speaker. First add sand to the plate then begin playing a tone. Certain frequencies vibrate the metal plate in such a way that it creates areas where there is no vibration. The sand “falls” into those areas, creating beautiful geometric patterns. As the frequency increases in pitch the patterns become more complex“.
