Time to calculate!

Calculating the fundamental and resonant frequencies which will visualise patterns in the Ruben’s Tube:

v=fλ

where v = the speed of sound,
f is the funadmental frequency, and
λ is the wavelength.

f=v/λ


To calculate the wavelength:

λ=4L

Where L is the length of the tube in meters.


To calculate the resonant frequencies:

f(n)=n*f(1)

Where n is the resonant frequency number and
f(1) is the fundamental frequency
