You’ve purchased two identical violin strings. You install one of the strings in a conventional violin; the other string you stretch between two posts, each attached to rigid concrete pillar in the open air. Both strings are made of the same materials, have the same length and are tensioned identically. What difference in sounds would you expect to hear between the two strings? Note: you must clearly mark your answer(s) (for example, highlight it in red) from the multiple-choice list below and you must provide an explanation of your answer to receive credit. Review: course textbook (section 9.1).
