Blowing bottletops: making music with s bottles

Postby rachelet » Tue Jan 01, 2013 9:25 am

What kind of data chart can be used when experimenting with making music in glass bottletops? We are trying to determine how the frequency of a note produced is related to the length of a column.

Welcome to Science Buddies and thank you for the question. If you have a way to accurately measure the frequency of the note then I would suggest plotting the data on a graph with the length of the bottle neck along the x-axis vs. frequency along the y-axis to show the relationship between the two.
Hope this helps.
