Yes, I recommend
Ordered eight of these. Tubes are made of thick plastic which is good. The plastic cups that hold water are about as cheap as one can get. They leak! I had to buy silicon to fix the leaks. Shouldn't come out of the box like this. I wish manufacturer's cared about their products. They sure charge a fortune for them...

Educational Materials Physics Educational Materials AP Physics Learning Activities
Three Tuning Forks With Variable Frequencies

  • Durable materials for years of use
  • Instruction manual included
Introducing the new Cenco AP Physics lab series. Ideal for AP, B and C, I and II, and advanced honors physics courses, each of the 24 experiments is aligned with the College Board AP Curriculum. The teacher guides and student manuals are authored by an experienced AP Physics teacher, so you can trust the setups to be successful in your classroom. Lead students through these hands-on labs using the outlined guided-inquiry approach. All labs come complete with instructions and materials for up to six students per lab group, the inquiry based instructions are found in the separate manuals. For your convenience, labs are packaged to allow you to purchase only what is required for each experiment.

Students investigate the relationship amongst the resonance for different tuning forks and their frequency. Based on this, students can determine the speed of sound in air by using the wavelength of the tuning forks and the ambient air temperature. The kit includes a resonance apparatus with support stand, support clamps, ruler, thermometer, rubber hammer, and three tuning forks: 512 Hz, 320 Hz, and 1024 Hz.
