Harmonic

If a signal (representing acceleration, displacement, sound pressure etc.) is composed of a number of components of frequencies which are all integer multiples of one (fundamental) frequency, these components are said to form a harmonic train. The component at twice the fundamental frequency would be known as the second harmonic, the component at t...

Harmonic

Harmonics are the accessory sounds accompanying the predominant and apparently simple tone of any string, pipe, or other sonorous body. No purely simple sound, ie no sound whose vibrations are all in the same period, is producible in nature. When a sound is produced by the vibration of an open string, the whole string vibrates as a unity, giving ri...
