The Attempt at a Solution


Objective: To study how does the frequency of the sound are affected by tension, length and material of the string. This objective was rejected by teacher.

Any other suggestions regarding this topic?[/B]

It seems that you need to investigate what has an influence
on how well the students can hear the messages over the PA system.
That would be the PA system itself, maybe how well it reproduces various
frequencies, how loud should one talk into it or how close one's mouth should
be to the microphone, does it transmit lower frequencies (male voice) better than
higher frequencies (female voice), and external influences once the waves are in the air, like wind,
position of the student with respect to the PA system, temperature of the air....
