Build a speaker Sound wave blog.modernmechanix.com Compressional wave Air is compressed and expanded

rhythmically Created by something vibrating A speaker vibrates

The paper diaphragm vibrates Pushes the air The sound waves travel to your ear Tiny hairs in your ear wave in the breeze Your nerves pick this up, detect as sound www.physclips.unsw.edu.au/ jw/electricmotors.html

How do we make the sound? We must convince the paper to vibrate in synch with our music Our music is generated by our (stereo, mp3player, etc.) as an electrical signal High frequency electrical signal=high frequency sound

Low=Low Music is a combination of lots of frequencies www.cs.dartmouth.edu/ ~dwagn/aiproj/speech.html We will use electromagnetism We will create a force field:

We will make an electric field That creates a magnetic field That creates a force The force will push the paper First, think about magnets

Like poles repel South repels south Opposite poles attract The magnets produce a force

http://www.swe.org/iac/lp/magnets_03.html We say the magnet has a field The field is invisible

But it is real It can act on objects Repel or attract them Example: compass needle Opposite poles

attract North end of compass needle attracted to south pole of magnet Why cant we feel the magnetic field? Were not magnetic! hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu/.../ elemag.html Lets Practice

Web.mit.edu/ Physics 8.02 Module Guide 09 Which side is the N pole? Which side is the S pole? Lets Practice

Web.mit.edu/ Physics 8.02 Module Guide 09 Solution: Arrows point out of the North pole and into the south pole. Lets Practice Will these magnets attract or repel each other?

Web.mit.edu/ Physics 8.02 Module Guide 09 Lets Practice Opposite poles attract: Web.mit.edu/ Physics 8.02 Module Guide 09 Lets Practice We can even make the magnets oscillate! (vibrate)

Web.mit.edu/ Physics 8.02 Module Guide 09 So we can push magnets around Big whoop. We want to push the paper around.

Paper is not magnetic. What should we do? So we can push magnets around Big whoop. We want to push the paper around.

Paper is not magnetic. What should we do? Glue a magnet to the paper Then what? We want to push the magnet around, but in synch with our

music Our music is in the form of an electrical signal right now We will put electromagnetism to work First piece of information When current (I) flows though a wire, it creates a

magnetic field (B) Use right hand rule to find direction http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electromagnet Is this drawn correctly? Web.mit.edu/ Physics 8.02 Module Guide 09 If the current changes

Suppose the current reverses direction What will happen to the field? If the current changes

Suppose the current reverses direction What will happen to the field? It will reverse Can we use this to push a magnet

around? Yes, but its pretty weak Suppose we make a loop All the field lines inside the loop go the same direction

Is the figure drawn correctly? The field gets concentrated physicsed.buffalostate.edu/.../ rhr/rhr.htm Remember Two Magnets? Will these magnets attract or repel each other? Web.mit.edu/

Physics 8.02 Module Guide 09 Remember Two Magnets? Will these magnets attract or repel each other? Web.mit.edu/ Physics 8.02 Module Guide 09 Replace one magnet Web.mit.edu/ Physics 8.02

Module Guide 09 Reverse Current Web.mit.edu/ Physics 8.02 Module Guide 09 Electricity creates oscillation! By alternating the current direction We can make the coil oscillate! Web.mit.edu/

Physics 8.02 Module Guide 09 Ok! We can push the magnet! But the field is still weak. Need a way to amplify the field.

A bunch of loops=electromagnet www.utm.edu/~cerkal/ magnetic.htm OK, we have all the pieces! Need a paper diaphragm Need a voice

coil About 50 turns should do it Need a magnet And a music source!

(and probably an amplifier) Voice coil Slide straw over dowel Wrap wire around straw Leave about 6 free before you start winding Leave 6 at the end Overlap wire as much as

possible Make sure all wire is on the

straw Twist wire so it doesnt unwind When finished, slide coil to one end of straw Remove dowel Burn speaker leads Burn 1 inch of the end of each of the two wires coming

off the coil. Diaphragm Cut out template Cut slot at white line Make cone and tape it

Attach coil to diaphragm Glue long end of straw to bottom of cone Coil should be at end away from cone Dont get glue on the

end of the straw away from the cone need room for magnet to move! Glue magnets to the square Magnets should be stacked. Both magnets

should be on the same side of the paper! Tape legs to the cardboard Coil should hover above or gently rest on cardboard after all four legs have been taped. Connect to audio cable

Twist yellow wire and one lead from your speaker together Twist red or white wire with other speaker lead. Tape audio cable to cardboard

Tape the black audio cable to the edge of your cardboard. Position Magnets Inside Coil Tape paper down Connect to mp3 and play! You have applied

electromagnetism to create sound from an electrical signal. How do you suppose a microphone works? Troubleshooting

Volume set to max?

Speaker is plugged into phone all the way? Magnets are inside the coil? Coil can easily slide up and down on the magnets? Coil is at the bottom of the straw? (Closest to the cardboard) 1 inch of each speaker lead was burned? The two twisted connections are not touching each other? If your audio cable doesnt have a red, white and yellow wire, you can use any two wires Try re-twisting the audio cable to the speaker
