A sound wave travels in air at a frequency of 500 Hz. If part of the wave travels from air into water, does its frequency change?
2. ### Physics

I did a lab in which we were to find the 1st resonance and 2nd resonance and from them we found wavelength which in turn helped us find speed of sound. We used tuning forks and the frequancy was given. We besically moved a plastic …
