Temp of water in a bottle change it's note ?
« on: 07/03/2005 20:14:06 »
Dear Science People of Academic Degrees,

I don't even know why I'm asking this but if you had three bottles, all with the same amount of water in them but each one was a different temperature, say...frozen, room temp and 80 degrees celsius, would there be a difference in the musical note of each bottle when struck ?...and if so...why ?

Thank you in advance of the music you'll bring to the space between my ears.

well the frozen one would definately be different because the crystal structure is completely different, I would imagine there would be a subtle difference according to temp within the same phase state; probably due to changes in density.

Are YOUR mice nude? ;)

If you change the temperature of the water it will change it's density a bit, so you would either alter the depth or the weight of the water (depending on how you were measuring the same amount) which would alter the pitch of the note...
