Measuring frequency

  1. Mar 30, 2009 #1
    How would I determine if attaching small crystals on a vibrating metal surface will make any significant sounds.. i know I can do an experiment where i record the sound of the metal vibrating with out the crystals on and then again with the crystals attached but other than going by my natural ability of hearing, is there someway to capture the sound and have a documented report showing the difference? I guess I am asking if there is any software that would map the wave file of each, particularly showing an enhancement and determining if the added crystals have any effect at all on the metal when it is vibrated. thanks for any help.
