I've been super busy with school this semester -- no time for Atheist Nexus, sadly!!
If anyone who's around here a lot wants me to toss them moderation privileges to run this group or anything, just send me (Sara) a message! Thanks!

Removed ability to send mass messages to everyone in the group. At 1000+ members, that seems like asking for spam.

Offer still open if anyone active in the group wants moderation privileges, but it appears everything has been going smoothly with all kinds of great discussions without moderation. Fantastic! :)

Chris G, I had not thought of sound pollution. Of course! I wonder if there is a frequency that attracts wildlife?
Comment by Kolten on March 18, 2013 at 7:48am
It's only visible with a 24 fps camera, not the naked eye. Although there is a variation of the experiment that can be seen with the naked eye, but requires a strobe light.

At first I thought I wouldn't need to use my o-scope because the f-generator has a calibrated dial but after looking up Avian hearing thresholds and seeing frequencies as low as 30 Hz for Great Horned Owls I considered the other wildlife and nixed the idea as a permanent installation. Wildlife doesn't need another noise pollutant.

PS. Higher frequencies than we humans hear might bother neighborhood dogs.

Comment by tom sarbeck on March 18, 2013 at 1:18am

Chris, if you also have an oscilloscope you can see your frequency generator's output.

Comment by Chris G on March 17, 2013 at 5:05pm

I have a frequency generator and will do that in the back yard if I can find an cheap weatherproof speaker and it doesn't bother the birds.

I like The water + sound video. It would make an interesting bird water fountain, too.

A simple, few words, repeated many times, and at least the initials begin to fit a concept of E=MC2. Thanks Ruth.

Cool water & sound experiment.

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on March 16, 2013 at 2:19pm

Water plus sound : love that physics! The reverse effect would make a cool fountain for the lobby of a physics department.
