This experiment investigated the accuracy with which the location of a probe tip relative to the tympanic membrane can be estimated by means of standing waves. The ear canal length of each ear of six adult subjects was measured with a probe tube using a tactile method. A 6-kHz warble tone was then generated, and the position of the standing wave notch in the ear canal was determined using a probe microphone by noting the place where the sound pressure level was at a minimum. The distance of the… CONTINUE READING
