Yes, music is math. Also, if anyone can identify the equations Rhoads’ is looking at in today’s comic, you will win my praise and affection!
Frequency = 1/period
Wavelength = velocity/frequency
The physics of sound.
AHAHAHA! Fact. I’m studying twelve tone theory right now and math is ALL I do
Oh please no… I love music, but absolutely hate math. Please no!
As a math graduate student transferring to graduate school in composition, all I can say is: THANK YOU!
HAHAHA. Within two hours of the comic being posted, both formulas have been identified. You guys are awesome!!!
Definitely… Forte equals the inverse of Piano.
I actually lol’d. Thank you!
First one is the formula for frequency given a period of p. I use that one all the time. Second is for calculating wavelength given a phase speed of v and a frequency of f. I’ll probably use that formula more often now that I’m getting into radio stuff. I’m just glad I don’t have to calculate these in my head while I’m playing my instrument lol.
2nd one looks like wavelength formula
