Physics H133: Problem Set #1

Here are some hints, suggestions, and comments on the problem set.

Two-Minute Problems

Remember to give a good explanation, no longer than two sentences.

  1. Q1T.11: Will a string strongly resonate (absorb energy) from a disturbance at any frequency at all?
  2. Q1S.1: What property of the instrument does the pitch depend on? (What property of a pipe does the fundamental pitch depend on?) Note: the pitch is the same as the frequency.

Chapter Q1 Problems

Your comments and suggestions are appreciated.
