Measurement of the Frequencies of One Octave in a Harmonium by Counting Beats.
Datta, Somnath
Physics Education, v8 n1 p26-29 Apr-Jun 1991
An experiment intended to familiarize a student with the musical scale and the technique of tuning an instrument by listening for beats is described. From the dial reading of the oscillator frequency and the counted beats frequency, the student then computes the frequency of each musical note over one full octave. (Author)
