The strings of a harp have different lengths in order to produce different notes. However, given that the strings in a guitar have all the same length, how are the different notes produced?


Expert Answer

Step 1

By a vibrating object produced a sound wave. The strings in a guitar have all the same length. These guitar strings vibrates the surrounding air molecules into vibrational motion. These air molecules vibrate is equal to the frequency of vibration of the guitar string.

Step 2

From the source, pressure wave creates by the back and forth vibrations of the surrounding air molecules. These pressure waves travels outward from the guitar.

Step 3

The length of th...
