Musical Flame Thrower - Ruben's Tube

A Rubens' tube, also known as a standing wave flame tube, or simply flame tube, is an antique physics apparatus for demonstrating acoustic standing waves in a tube. Invented by German physicist Heinrich Rubens in 1905, it graphically shows the relationship between sound waves and sound pressure, as a primitive oscilloscope. Today, it is used only occasionally, typically as a demonstration in physics/chemistry education. We will attach an electric guitar and a violin to the tube.

Do You Drink Enough? Check Your Urine!

People are often told to check their hydration by looking at the color of their urine, but we don’t know how useful this self-assessment is. The Athlete Field Lab and the Hydration Science Lab at ASU did a study in fall 2019 to determine how well athletes can assess their hydration through the color of their urine. At ASU Open Door you will be able to learn about the results of the athlete study. Please come to our booth and asses your own hydration status!
