Why is loud sound heard at resonance?


Expert Answer

Step 1

Resonance is the tendency of a system to oscillate with greater amplitude at some frequencies than at others.

Step 2

Frequencies at which the response amplitude is a relative maximum are known as the system's resonant frequencies, or resonance frequencies. At these fre...
