Chen, Dongsheng; Hu, Haining; Xing, Lirong; Liu, Yongsheng
European Journal of Physics, v30 n3 p541-548 May 2009
This paper describes an interesting sound phenomenon from a modern copy of the Chinese ancient variable bell which can emit distinctly different sounds at different temperatures. By means of audition--spectrum analyser software--and PC, the sound signals of the variable bell are collected and the fundamental spectra are shown on the PC. The configuration is simple and cheap, suitable for demonstration and laboratory exercises. (Contains 1 table, 9 figures, and 1 footnote.)
