Abstract

THE number of vibrations executed in a second by a stretched string is generally represented in the text-books by a formula expressing the method of its variation with the determining circumstances, such as— where d is the diameter, l the length, s the specific gravity of the string, and T the tension or stretching force, but the absolute number of vibrations is not generally given by the formula.
