Hooke's Law, Vibrations, Mechanical Waves, and Sound

Dangle a spring to experiment with vibration and discover if period is dependent on amplitude. Strum a guitar and adjust the strings to compare displacement and sound. Use a Slinky® and guitar strings on a ring stand to uncover the mystery of resonance. For all three activities, Hooke's law and other equations are applied. These high-level activities will sing of information for your physics learners when studying wave motion, vibrations, and sound.
