Calculating notes of twanged strips Answered
Consider a twanged metal ruler, or the "keys" of a thumb piano (kalimba)...
I'm in the middle of designing A Thing, and I am sure that there ought to be a way of calculating the note produced when you twang the end of a strip of metal.
Assuming I know the Young's modulus, length, width & thickness of a strip of metal (rectangular cross-section), is there a formula into which I can plug these numbers and predict the note produced?
Or are there other properties I need to know?
