Harmonics Poster

The harmonics poster has the first five harmonics in a rainbow of colors.

When you vibrate a string, you can get standing waves. The frequencies that produce standing waves are called the wave’s harmonics.

This poster shows he first five harmonics of a wave on a string.

The harmonics of a particular wave have frequencies that are whole-number integer multiples of the original frequency.  For example, if the first harmonic has a frequency of 100 Hz, the second harmonic has a frequency of 200 Hz, the third harmonic has a frequency of 300 Hz and so on.

The wavelength and frequency are multiplied to find the speed.  Since the speed of a wave is fixed in a particular medium, increasing the frequency decreases the wavelength.  You can see that each of the harmonics has a shorter wavelength.
