Framed Print of Speed of sound experiment, 1826

Speed of sound experiment, 1826
Speed of sound experiment, 1826
Speed of sound experiment. 19th-century artwork of an experiment that took place in 1826 to measure the speed of sound in water. It was carried out on Lake Geneva by the Swiss physicist Daniel Colladon (1802-1893). The listener observes a distant boat where an underwater bell is struck simultaneously with the ignition of flammable powder (see C013/8775). On seeing the flash of light, he starts a timer and listens for the bell. This work won an 1827 prize from the French Academy of Sciences.
