9) result from the fact that sound waves are pressure fluctuations moving through space, and therefore the distance it takes to complete one cycle of a wave (its wavelength) can be measured in inches or millimeters. So in standing waves there are points in space where particle displacement is at a maximum, and others where particle displacement is at a minimum. The resonances of a tube that is closed at one end and open at the other have wavelengths such that points of maximum particle displacement in the standing waves (antinodes) occur at the open end of the tube, while points of zero particle displacement (nodes) occur at the closed end.

666 ms (the distance between the double peaks), and thus has a frequency of 1,500 Hz. ). So both sounds are composed of the same harmonics, but the relative amplitudes of the harmonics are different. In the spectrum of the voice source, the harmonics decrease steadily in amplitude as their frequency increases; while in the spectrum of schwa the harmonics around 500 Hz, 1,500 Hz, 2,500 Hz, and 3,500 Hz have higher amplitudes than harmonics at other frequencies. 5, these seemingly minor changes in the relative amplitudes of the harmonics have a major impact on the shape of the waveform.

Note that the voicing waveform has a nonsinusoidal repeating pattern. The number of times that this complex periodic waveform repeats per second determines its fundamental frequency (F0), and is related to the listener’s perception of the pitch of the voice. 0066 seconds). 2). The fundamental frequency is the first (lowest-frequency) peak in the power spectrum, and each of the other peaks in the spectrum is at a multiple of the fundamental frequency.
