In this work we describe how we designed and built an acoustic system that allowed us to adapt a Kundt's tube for the measurement of the speed of sound at different temperatures. The air column inside the tube was excited by a speaker at a frequency of 2 kHz. We changed the air column length by moving a piston throughout the tube, and we measured and recorded that length when we observed a resonance signal on the oscilloscope screen. This procedure was repeated at different temperatures,

The results were compared with those predicted by the classical model, which assumes that air is an ideal diatomic gas, and that the acoustic phenomenon is an adiabatic process. Finally, it was found a satisfactory agreement between the experimental values and those predicted by the classical model
