Waves in Pipes ans Strings

Notes

Stationary Waves in a Closed Organ Pipe

A hollow wooden or metallic tube used to produce sound is called an organ pipe. This note provides us an information on stationary waves in a closed organ pipe.

Open Organ Pipe and End Correction in Pipes

An open pipe is one which is opened at both ends. This note provides us an information on open organ pipe and end correction in pipes.

Resonance and Velocity of Transverse Wave along a Stretched String

When a body capable of vibration is displaced and then allowed to vibrate freely, it will vibrate with a frequency which is called the natural frequency. This note provides us an information on resonance and velocity of a transverse wave along a stretched string.

Waves and Laws of Transverse Vibration in Stretched String

A progressive sound wave is produced in the surrounding air having a frequency equal to that of the stationary wave in the string. This note provides us an information on the waves and laws of transverse vibration in stretched string.

Waves in Rods

The modes of vibration in a metal rod depend on the position at which the rod is clamped. This note provides us an information on waves in rods.
