PHYSICS OF SOUND

Mr Stefan Walter was a guest speaker in Mrs Aldous Year 8 Science class recently, demonstrating the Physics of Sound with his electric guitar, carrot clarinet or ‘Clarot’ and real clarinet. They also looked at the difference between electric and acoustic guitars as one of the students showed off his great guitar abilities with a solo.

 

 

The Physics of Sound Energy

Mr Stefan Walter was a guest speaker in Mrs Aldous year 8 Science class today, to demonstrate the Physics of Sound with his electric guitar, carrot clarinet or ‘Clarot’ and real clarinet. We also looked at the difference between electric and my acoustic guitar. The students had lots of questions and one of the students Sam even demonstrated his great guitar abilities playing ‘Sweet Child of Mine’ by Guns and Roses.

Observing Energy

The Year 8s are learning about energy in Physics this term. Today they were observing the transfer of energy by spinning snakes with their favourite piece of lab equipment, the Bunsen burner!
