node, antinode, node
you would think it was some kind of code
but in strings and a open tube
wavelength equals length over n times two
Node here, node there
but no movement
Antinode here, antinode there
Where did it go?
Physics is actually really hard
This is not the poem of a traveling bard
Beacuase it's really lame
But - resonance is cool
And music is awesome!
standing waves, oh how they stand
y = 2A cos (2πx/λ) cos 2πft is how they do it
if the medium they're in let's them stand
then they resonate, that's about it
Standing waves are really cool
Resonance makes them work.
Learning about them relieves the taste of gruel
and it doesn't even make you a dork.
Standing waves do not stand
Waves vibrating in the distance
Slowly forming words
Resonating light accompanies the letters.
Physics of Music reigns supreme!
You stay in one place all day
You're not going anywhere anyway
You looked best on that bridge in the movay (movie - ghetto version)
You're on every string I play.
As I take a shower, I sing a diddly tune,
certain one "vibrate" and I think its coming from the moon
but I realize its only one frequency,
hence meaning its resonance.
Haikus were back with a vengeance:
(5) standing waves are fun.
(7) Which like phyics is spelled with
(5) a "P." "H.", not "f."
5 Physics of Music
7 Oh how resonance is great
5 Guitars, flutes, and boots
PHYSICS OF MUSIC
A TIME TO PLAY WITH SLINKIES
WHICH MAKES MY DAY PHUN
WAS A RESONATING BRIDGE
NOW IT IS NO MORE
the odd world we see -
sounds sounding, bridges falling:
man is physics phun
"Haikus for Waves"
Waves, I say, unite!
For you must stand against those
who resist your sound.
Tuba or kazoo,
Sing your supersonic boom
and crush oppression
Another student thought a haiku was 3-5-3:
they can resonate
to make sounds
More haiku innovation, this time with the 7-7-7 form:
Resonance is confusing
Standing waves are important
I like Physics of Music
One student wrote an acrostic, which they called a "line poem":
P - phun
h - hungry
y - yearn for waves
s - slinky day
i - intensity of the power
c - calculator
s - songs
This student said "I hate sappy poetry" while handing in his/her test:
Only for one does my heart resonate
Like a column of air in the wind
I seek the one whose frequency suits me
To release the sound within.
A Sir Mix-a-lot homage:
I like standing waves and I cannot lie,
You other musicians can't deny,
When a girl walks in with a kazoo on her chin,
and a trombone in your face
The minimal approach:
Physics is phun? lol.... no time
