|Mr Krabs Listens to music with his eyes|
I am talking about Ernst Chladni a physicist and a musician. By the way, I guess most physicist like the vibes of music... like our famous Albert Einstein who loves his violin..
Ernst Chladni invented a technique that allows us to visualise the different resonance on a given surface under a specific given frequency.
Nodal lines are area which separates the opposite directional wave, like the red dots below.
These nodal patterns formations are also known as Chladni Figures.
So why is this important? Ain't they only patterns?
They are useful in the context of acoustic engineering especially when designing a acoustic instrument. A well designed plate will result in a better quality sounding music instrument.
Do you know? Chladni's creation of Cristal Baschet was inspired by Franklin's glass harp.
