Seeing Sound with a Chladni Plate

Duration: 1:11

Can a metal plate make it possible to see sound?

Watch this video to see standing wave patterns form at different resonant frequencies on a Chladni plate when the plate is covered with sand and struck with a violin bow.

We also feature a simulation application that demonstrates various plate shapes and wave patterns that are possible at different tones.
