Homework Help: Physics

Posted by AAAA on Thursday, February 9, 2012 at 3:17pm.

Explain why placing your finiger exactly in the middle of a guitar or violin string and pressing it against the neck should give a tone about an octave higher than the open (full length) string.
Explain ( in terms of the tension in the string) why you may in reality get a difference slightly greater than an octave, especially if the bridges are high and hold the string very far above the fingerboard.
