LAB EQUIPMENT

1.  Air track
2.  Air source & hose
3.  6 gliders
4.  7 springs
(Have to combine air track kits to get enough springs & gliders)

    DIRECTIONS

    1.  Attach track to air source.
    2.  Connect gliders with springs, alternating sides of the track between gliders.
    3.  Turn air source on.
    4.  Oscillate glider A with a frequency below the critical frequency and observe wave       propagation along the track.
    5.  Oscillate glider A with a frequency above 1 Hz and observe that the wave will not       propagate along the track.
