How does tube diameter influence frequency?
What did he say?!
Geometry (size and shape) influences natural frequency
Compare how easy it is to bend a larger diameter pipe versus a smaller diameter pipe
The smaller diameter pipe is easy to bend - it is "softer"
The larger diameter pipe is harder to bend - it is "stiffer"
Predict if the larger or smaller diameter chime will have a higher frequency
Make your prediction:
Can I try?
Smaller Diameter (0.5 inch or 1/2 in)
Larger Diameter (0.75 inch or 3/4 inch)
