Bell Resonance in Air vs. in Water

  1. Aug 11, 2008 #1

    I am a noob and have a question with respect to resonance.

    A bell hanging of a string been in Air, when struck, has resonance peak(s) in the audible and possibly ultra sound spectrum.

    My questions is, if this very same bell would be hanging of a string and fully submerged in water, what would happen ?

    Would the water dampen the resonance ?

    Would the resonance peak(s) frequency change ?

    Whats determine factor for resonance, speed of sound in the bronze material, speed of sound in air or speed of sound in water ?

    Thanks for pointers
