What is the practical use of rubens tube?
If it is only demonstrating sound waves as pressure waves, a simple slinky can be used for that.

It doesn't truly have a separate purpose than to demonstrate sound waves as pressure waves, however it is a very interesting and visual representation that is likely more engaging the a slinky would be.
