IDEERS Natural Frequency Experiments

This experiment was designed by me, Tommy Wood (age 15), as part of my work experience with the EERC at Bristol University. I wanted to spend some time with them after seeing a demonstration they had done in a local shopping centre during National Science Week.

I spent 3 days working on the text and taking the pictures for this web-page. I hope you find it useful.

So here we go.….

First and foremost, be prepared to get stuck in and have fun !

You will need these materials:

  • A block of polystyrene or florists' dry oasis
    (about 20x10x10 cm)
  • Plasticine
  • Bags of florists' wire
    (The same lengths but different thicknesses)

Then, try these experiments in order:
