A guitar and a flute are in tune with each other. Explain how a change in temperature could alter this situation.
Step 1 of 3
Solution 6E STEP 1: When temperature increases, the guitar strings will be elongated and the tension in the string will decrease. Once the guitarist will start playing it, the standing waves created by the vibration in the string would suffer through an increase in wavelength and decrease in frequency. This will create a low tempo than before. STEP 2: While the flute will also go through a change in it’s tune as the air will be less denser than before, because of the increase in temperature. The amplitude of the flute’s tune will be decreased. For the decrease in temperature, reverse things happen.
