Design Requirements

What did he say?!

  • We've learned that a tube can be designed to create a particular frequency.

  • What do I do now?

  • Describe all the things that the solution should look like or do.  In the engineering process this is defining the design requirements

  • Our requirements:

    • The wind chime will have 3 tubes that create 3 notes

    • The combination of notes will create a pleasing sound when played together

  • Design solution:​

    • Choose a musical chord composed of 3 notes

    • Find the frequencies of the notes

    • Determine what length tube creates each of the frequencies

Defining the design requirements: Pick your Chime Chord

  • Choose a chord and type the frequencies into the chord player
