EASY STUFF: Impedence, pitch, vibration, reasonance... Please Help! I would really appreciate it if you guys could take a look at these problems I have difficulty with. Thanks a lot. My answers are in red. 1. As impedance decreases, frequency decreases? 2. For the vibration spectrum (of frequency and amplitude) of a plucked spring, why are there spaces between the lines? Why are most frequencies zero amplitude? 3. After playing a long peice of music, the pitch of the string in a violin will be lower Why does the pitch change? What can you do to adjust the violin so it plays the correct pitch? 4. Why does our voice sound different when we have a cold? Sinuses are stuffed. But how can this be explained by physics? 5. Identify if the following situations are Forced Vibration or Reasonance: 1. The sounding board of a piano makes the sound louder. forced 2. A piano strikes a chord and breaks a dish in the next room. resonance 3. One barking dog causes the doorbell to ring, but another does not. resonance 4. An earthquake can cause the dishes onn your shelves to vibrate. forced 5. Sometimes, if the wind instruments hit a particular note, the snare (a metal attachment) on the snare drum will begin to hum. forced 6. In a flight, you can permanently deafen someone by hitting both of his ears simultaneously with your open hands. Explain.
