Googling yields contradictory results, so here my question:
When I sing, my vocal chords vibrate, but my whole body is the resonance body, right? So I would say that when I think about standing waves etc. I must think of a resonantor that's closed (i.e. hard boundary conditions) at both ends, because my bottom end is certainly closed, and the top end has the vocal chords which are vibrating similar to woodwind instruments, so it's closed on that end as well.
If I am mistaken, could someone point out the physics behind this?
