Singing Wine Glass Constant?

  1. Jun 18, 2014 #1
    Hi everyone

    I have been working with singing wine glasses and the A.P French equation - I was just wondering if there is a value or way to work out the value of the constant in the equation?

    I have a basic understanding of physics but yeah haha...

    Cheers guys

    AP French Constant

    The AP French equation is very complex and I am assuming the constant that you are referring to is β (beta).

    If so, the value of β can be calculated using the equation:
    β=0.3-1.229x10^-4 x abs(965-density of liquid)

    This equation is discussed in the document I have linked below:

    Hope this helps
