Experimental Demonstration on Air Cavity Mode of Violin Using Holed Sheets of Paper
Matsutani, Akihiro
Physics Education, v53 n2 Article 025005 Mar 2018
The fundamental air cavity mode (A0) of a violin was investigated from the viewpoint of its dependence on the opening area and shape by using holed sheets of paper. The dependences of the frequency response of the A0 cavity mode on the shape, opening area, and orientation of the openings were observed. It was also demonstrated that the change of the opening area of f-holes affects to the performed tone with an actual violin.
