  • Savart wheels/ rotating disks are devices used in laboratories for studying acoustics and the perception of sound.
  • Savart’s wheel is used to determine the frequency of an unknown pitch.
  • If the wheels are rotated along their central axis, and a card held against the teeth, a musical note is emitted but unlike the tuning forks the largest wheel gives the highest note.
