Chladni Plates Square and Round Plate

The Chladni Plates Kit allows the continuous vibrations to be produced at measurable frequencies to determine the resonant frequencies of the plates and examine the modes of vibration at any frequency. A thin layer of sand is spread over the plate. The sand collected along the nodal lines of the wave patterns painted clear and beautiful pictures of the various modes of vibration. The plate’s resonances are audible. Kit is made of metal sheet in two shapes: square and round. The round plate can be vibrated about its center or an offset point to investigate both symmetric and asymmetric modes of vibration.
