  • Correlation Between Weber 's Law And Visual Perception

    1500 Words  | 6 Pages

    Abstract The purpose of this study was to measure and record the just-noticeable-difference (or JND) thresholds of random participants using their visual-based perception and to replicate and confirm Weber’s Law. Through this four-level single-factor experiment, these participants were asked to compare two lines which were flashed to them on a computer screen. Their objective at that point was to choose which line was longer of the two that were shown, and this was repeated 160 times at four different

    with small intervals. It complements the opening oboe well and contributes to the happy spring like opening to the section. When the clarinet chimes in at 2:31 it immediately pierces the ear and takes over the section. The melody goes up once in pitch, and then quickly falls and rises again. The high note is then held for an extended period of time until the clarinet trickles out of the note by descending the scale. This melody is repeated for the whole section by the clarinet. There are some

  • Physics Speed of Sound Lab Report

    743 Words  | 3 Pages

    Samantha Mackey 13. 2nd hour PHYSICS LAB REPORT: SPEED OF SOUND Purpose: In this lab, we will be doing 3 major things: 1) Collecting and organizing data to obtain resonant points in a closed pipe, 2) measure the length of a closed-pipe resonator, and 3) analyze the data to determine the speed of sound. Procedure: 1. Fill the graduated cylinder nearly to the top with water, with a tall glass tube open at both ends (the water level with act as the closed end). 2. Determine

  • Mathematics In Music : The Relationship Of Mathematics And Music

    706 Words  | 3 Pages

    Math can be seen in all aspects of life, whether you notice it is prevalent or not. As a result, almost every aspect of life can be boiled down to a specific group of mathematical concepts. Similarly, art forms, especially music, can be analyzed through the eye of math and therefore be fully inspected, observing how certain chords and notes sound more harmonious than others. Mathematics and music have a closer relationship than most people realize. Mathematics and music are directly related and

  • Experiment Standing Waves Lab

    918 Words  | 4 Pages

    In this experiment, lab partners observed standing waves as presented by a sonometer. Students observed the relationships between frequency and length at a constant mass, frequency and tension at a constant length, and tension and linear density at a constant frequency. Our results were reasonable and indicated that the relationships for the first two parts were linear which means as the length decreases, frequency will increases at a constant tension and as tension increases, the squared frequency

  • The Main Goal for a Pitcher

    Bradford who have unorthodox way to pitch the baseball. Although these guys display different mechanics before each pitch, they still share the basic five steps of pitching that explain the Biomechanical Analysis of the Baseball Pitch. These five steps include: the wind-up, stride, arm cocking, arm acceleration, arm deceleration with follow through. Pitching in itself is a science and this paper will provide a thorough biomechanical analysis of the baseball pitch following all the six steps. The Wind-Up

  • Essay about The Physics of Pitching

    the person throwing the ball, drag is the air resistance which pushes back against the velocity, and gravity which is constant and pushes the ball down against the upward velocity. Those forces for sure are slowing the pitch, yet it is not an equal force of the energy but into a pitch. When a bat connects with a ball there is a collision and a transfer of energy. When the ball makes it to the catcher then there is another collision and energy is conserved. In a nutshell here is the transfer of energy

    Other important elements in the creation of the nocturne are register and pitch. Register provides support for the harmonies which in turn serve as the foundation on which the piece is built. Chopin begins his Nocturne in D Flat Major with a simple arpeggiated

  • Essay On How To Throw A Baseball Pitch

    1241 Words  | 5 Pages

    having the proper instruction, you can now begin learning to throw different pitches. However, you must first know what each pitch does, what the pitch is used to do, and how the pitch is most effective for you. The three main pitches are the fastball, change-up, and curveball. To start, the fastball is a pitch that has the most speed out of any other pitch. While the pitch is called a fastball, there are two different types of fastballs: the two-seam and the four-seam. The two-seam fastball is relatively

  • Pitching Under Pressure

    1247 Words  | 5 Pages

    Perfect Pitching Under Pressure There are two outs in the bottom of the ninth of the World Series; the team in the field is up by one and the best hitter is coming up the plate. The pitcher takes a deep breath and realizes what had to be done. Three strikes and the game was over, but that seemed an eternity away with the overwhelming pressure mounting. How could the pitcher move past the pressure and get the last out? The answer would more than likely surprise most people. It is common knowledge
