Students in The Physics of Music learn to apply science principles to their music

Students in The Physics of Music course are challenged to create and tune a flute while applying science principles to music.

A white PVC pipe, a newly drilled hole and a cork—somehow these simple materials and some careful blowing should produce a perfectly tuned musical note, G4. But even the most talented musicians were challenged by this exercise as they carefully crafted simple flutes in a course called The Physics of Music. They were learning and applying physics principles behind sound and pitch.

“I play violin and this is a lot harder,” says Joy Pelikan ’18, who plays in the College’s String Ensemble. “But it’s been really interesting to learn more about sound.”
