Sonic Power: Harnessing Sound Waves to Drive Engines

This_Engine_Runs_On_Sound_Waves

Researchers created an engine using sound waves and a test tube. They blew air over the test tube at the right speed, which produced a whistling sound. The whistle sound results from the air entering the tube with momentum, causing the tube’s pressure to rise above atmospheric pressure. This pressure
