... (1) For a given string and a given tension, the time varies as the length. This is the fundamental principle of the monochord, and appears to have been understood by the ancients1. (2) When the length of the string is given, the time varies inversely... The Theory of Sound - Page 182by John William Strutt Baron Rayleigh - 1894 - 984 pagesFull view - About this book
