So you want to make fire dance? See invisible sound waves in action? You've come to the right place. This web page is devoted to my project for PHYS 420, a Physics course at UBC devoted to the creation of Physics demonstrations and inspiring others to find interest in the subject. The demonstration I focused on was a Rubens’ Tube, which uses fire to visually show how sound waves travel and interfere. 

On this site, you will find:

  • Information on how the Rubens' Tube works
  • Instructions and safety information for building/operating your own Rubens' tube
  • A short video of the demo in action
  • A lesson plan on sound geared towards grades 4-7 that involves the demonstration
