The ‘Kundt’s Tube’ demonstrates how sound waves travel through the tube, forming clear patterns. These patterns, known as standing waves, arise from the interaction between the back-and-forth movement of sound waves in the tube.

With techniques like those used in Kundt’s Tube, scientists and artists make sound waves visible, allowing us to ‘see’ what sound looks like.

This principle is employed in various applications and industries, such as designing musical instruments, speakers, and concert halls to achieve optimal sound quality. Knowledge about the formation of sound waves is also utilized in medical technology, for example, in ultrasound imaging.

Some animals, like dolphins and bats, use sound waves to navigate and hunt.
