If the sympathetic vibration of piano strings is significant for quantum mechanics theories, you are doing something wrong. This is a wholly classical physics phenomenon. Sympathetic vibration is actually a rather standard phenomenon. I has happened to me repeatedly when practising singing that I was annoyed by some buzz that turned out to be, for ...

The similarity between "how much noise each string is making" and "how each string interacts with the magnetic field" is greater than your question implies. In an acoustic guitar The vibration of the string transfers through the bridge of the guitar to the sounding board. This saps energy from the string causing its vibration to decay. The sounding board ...

You have nearly answered your own question. Except for one thing. the signal coming down the guitar cable is a literal reflection of how each string interacts with the magnetic field[s], not how much noise each string is making. Frequency and volume are the same, but you can't forget velocity. If two strings are tuned to the same frequency but one is ...

As you mentioned, the signal is a pretty good reflection of how the sound waves are behaving. You can watch videos where people actually connect their guitars to oscilloscopes. However, we know from physics how waves behave. The volume of playing changes the amplitude (or how tall the waves are). The pitch, or which string (or note) you play, changes the ...

I agree with Tim, although playing around with the resonance can definitely be fun! Vocal resonance is the result of the shaping of the throat and mouth, something known as the first and second formant tunings (but I wouldn't worry about the terms just yet). In order to find great resonance you must be able to freely adjust the vowel sounds created by your ...

Acoustic guitars have approximately the same range as male vocals. So the notes that it 'heard' were within the sound range it was produced to amplify and project.Had it been an acoustic bass, for example, the resonance would have been less. Bathrooms have a similar property, but usually have a particular frequency that gets amplified. On the guitar, there ...
