This edition of the Physics Girl Everyday Mysteries series is a physics experiment uses a quirk of the voice and your vocal cords. Try it at home!
Prof Joe Wolfe’s acoustics website: http://newt.phys.unsw.edu.au/music/
Intro chapter on the voice: http://www.animations.physics.unsw.edu.au/waves-sound/human-sound/index.html
Wade et al paper on soprano singing through resonances: https://asa.scitation.org/doi/abs/10.1121/2.0000354
More on vocal tract resonances: http://newt.phys.unsw.edu.au/jw/soprane.html
More facts: Most objects have a number of different resonant frequencies. The first resonance of the pipe were were using was around 70 Hz, which was lower than any of us could sing. A bass singer could hit that note, but were were singing in the range of the second and third resonances of the pipe.
No longer compiling your pipe singing submissions, but feel free to tweet me your attempts! @thephysicsgirl
