Hearing Sense - Ringing Ears Experiment
 
The Ringing Fork

Materials you will need:

• A Fork
• A Spoon
• 2-3 feet of String/Thread

 

 
 
Steps
 
1.  Take the string and tie the fork to the center of the string/thread.

2.  Take one end of the string/thread and tie it around your right index finger (pointer), then tie the other end of the string/thread around your left index (pointer) finger.

3.  Place your fingers (index/pointer) to your ears and let the fork dangle in front of you.

4.  Get someone to tap the fork with the spoon. You should hear loud ringing in your ears.

The ringing sound travels up the string/thread to your ears.

You could tie other metal objects to the string/thread to see what sounds travel to your ears.

On a nice day you could do this experiment outside where you can have more room to move around.
