# Questions tagged [resonance]

Resonance is a characteristic of physical systems having a structure that allows energy to flow between various states at a specific, oscillatory rate (resonant frequency). For a stable resonant system at steady state the internal energy is either fixed without losses or the rate of energy input is equal to the energy losses.

### Calculating the resonant frequency of a metal pin

Is there a way to calculate the required diameter of a cylindrical metal (let's say aluminum) pin of a fixed length so that it has a specific resonant frequency? Let's say I have an aluminum pin that ...

### Does resonance just depends upon the frequency of the external periodic force and the natural frequency of an object?

I am a little confused about the phenomenon of resonance, I read that it occurs when the frequency of an external force matches the natural frequency of an object. So, it was given that soldiers ...

### Resonance frequency and impedance of a piezoelectric element

I am reading about piezoelectric elements, and I have some questions in that regard. I have come across a graph showing the impedance as a function of frequency. Some spikes occurs on the graph at ...

### How to determine resonance frequency of a piezoceramic element?

Lets say we have a circular piezoelectric element with radius R and height H. We assume that the piezoelectric element has density $\rho$. How do you find the resonance frequency ? Is there a formula ...

### Difference between resonance and the synchronization of coupled oscillator

I was reading about phase synchronization of coupled oscillator where the oscillators are synchronized by an applied field. Now the coupled oscillators are synchronized. So my question is that what is ...

### How are standing wave patterns created in tubes?

I get how standing wave patterns are created in strings: At a certain resonance/natural frequency of the string, a standing wave is created, increasing the amplitude of the sound, and standing waves ...

### Ocean Frequencies

I'm a musician studying at uni. For an assessment I'm taking an idea for instrumental tuning which relies on a combination of Pythagorean tuning and Schumann resonances. Whilst Schumann resonance I ...

### How to find the resonant frequency of any column of air?

So for a research project I need to predict what the resonant frequency of a air column in a vessel will be . The problem is that these vessels are not cylindrical or any common shape. So I need to be ...

### Fiber ring resonators versus microresonators

Fiber ring resonators made of multimode fiber are capable of supporting multiple spatial modes. Even fiber ring resonators made of single mode fiber can, under favorable conditions, support a few ...

### Harmonic Oscillator (2DOF) - Do these results seem correct?

I solved a 2DOF system for a buried harmonic oscillator with a forcing function, but I'm not sure what I should be seeing in terms of resonant frequency shift & velocity. The resonant frequency of ...

### Why choosing for prime numbers eliminates vibration?

I have read that the spokes of a car wheel are usually five because, besides other substantial reasons, five being a prime number helps to reduce vibrations. The same also happens with the numbers of ...

### Does putting a part under stress change its natural frequency?

It is easy to imagine how tension changes the natural frequency of a wire. Intuitively it happens with a guitar string when you bend the neck. However, does putting a beam under stress (internal or ...

### Why are higher frequencies amplified less by filling a bottle with warmer water instead of colder water?

Out of curiosity I was trying to figure out what makes the sound of hot water versus cold water filling a bottle different, but I'm unable to find any explanation as to why such differences occur. ...

### What is the reason behind resonance?

At the technical highschool that I attend, the instructor said that the cause of resonance is that energies increase differently. Kinetic energy increases quadratically and potential linearly, so the ...

### Why is a parallel RLC circuit usually driven by a current source?

Almost always when I see an example of a parallel RLC/LC circuit diagram online, the circuit is driven by a current source instead of a voltage source. On the other hand, the series RLC is always ...

### Why are C, G and C all played open on the trumpet?

Why are C, G and C all played open on the trumpet? I would expect C, F# and C to be produced by adjusting embouchure as they're evenly each a half octave apart. What am I missing?

### The value of the driving frequency at which the voltage across the capacitor becomes maximum in a series RLC ac fed circuit

The circuit diagram is as shown. As per the book voltage across the capacitor is maximum during resonance that is p=1/√(LC) But what I found out is a bit different . And it is. p=√((1/LC)-(R²/2L²)) ...
