Title: String Instruments


1
String Instruments
  • In a stringed instrument, there are strings of
    various thicknesses. Generally, for a given
    material, the thicker the string the higher the
    linear density. Which of the following is true
    of these different strings? (Assume that the
    tensions are similar.)
  • The thickest string produces the highest
    frequency, the thinnest string produces the
    lowest.
  • The thinnest string produces the highest
    frequency, the thickest string produces the
    lowest.
  • None of the above.

String Instruments
  • In a stringed instrument, a string is tuned by
    changing its tension. If a string is playing
    flat (too low a frequency), you should
  • increase the tension.
  • decrease the tension.
  • None of the above.

String Instruments
  • In some stringed instruments, there are frets you
    can press the string against, to shorten the
    length of string that is vibrating. By doing
    this, you would
  • increase the frequency and pitch.
  • decrease the frequency and pitch.
  • None of the above.

Speed of Sound
  • The bulk modulus of air is proportional to the
    Kelvin temperature of the air. If the Kelvin
    temperature of the air increases by 1 (about 3
    degrees near room temp), then
  • the speed of sound in the air will increase by
    1.
  • the speed of sound in the air will decrease by
    1.
  • the speed of sound in the air will increase by
    less than 1.
  • the speed of sound in the air will decrease by
    less than 1.
