The Science Behind the Violin Maker – Application of Standing Waves on Strings

Summary: My learning object uses a prezi to explore the concept of standing waves, specifically on how wavelength and frequency are related to the number of nodes over a fixed length of string. I take these concepts and apply them to the violin, using a short video to demonstrate how only certain harmonics can exist on the violin and how we hear the difference between the harmonics, in terms of pitch.
