FORT WAYNE, Ind. (21Alive) -- In this week's episode of Cool Science Monday, Martin Fisher from Science Central will talk about tuning forks.
Sound is caused by vibration; something must wiggle or shake for sound to be created.
Martin had two tuning forks. When he would strike them, they vibrated and produced a sound. The smaller one vibrated faster and produced a higher sound. The larger one vibrated slower and produced a deeper sound.
We could see the vibration when Martin struck a tuning fork, placed it in a glass of water, and caused the water to splash.
