Why do the strings used for the lowest-frequency notes on a piano normally have wire wrapped around them?
Step 1 of 3
Piano is a string instrument. When you wrap a wire around a string you make them thicker.
This will make them vibrate more slowly. The frequency will therefore be lower. The frequency of vibration of the string depends on the tension, length, and thickness of the string,
