Finding harmonics

  1. Dec 3, 2005 #1
    In finding harmonics do you just multiply the harmonic number times the frequency? Find the first four harmonics when f=343Hz would be f1=343Hz, f2=686Hz, f3=1029Hz, and f4=1372Hz. This just seems too easy.

    That's basically it! There are situations where it's a bit more complex (oddly shaped waveguides, nonuniform media etc.) but that's not the case here (unless there is other pertinent information you have not disclosed).

    The problem reads exactly A string vibrates in a fundamental mode at 343Hz. Find the first four harmonics. Is this a special situation??

    Nope - nothing special about that! For a string the harmonics are simple!
