The more precise method for combining octaveband levels into an overall SPL is to use the following formula for logarithmic addition: n L = 10log ∑10 Li/10 i =1 In this formula L is the overall (combined) level in dB SPL; n is the number of bands being combined; i is the ith band; and Li is the OBL of the ith band. An example showing how this formula is used may be found in Appendix A. 1 The same methods can be used to combine octave-band levels into an A-weighted sound level (dBA), except that a correction factor is applied to each OBL.

This will be the lowest resonant frequency of the string, which is its fundamental frequency. Finding this frequency is a matter of substituting what we know into the formula f = c/λ. We know the length of the string (L), and we also know that L = λ/2. Therefore, λ = 2L. Substituting 2L for λ, the string’s lowest resonant frequency is found with the formula f = c/2L. [In reality, the speed of sound (c) is different for a vibrating string than it is for air. For the benefit of the math-minded student, the value of c for a string equals the square root of the ratio of its tension (T) to its mass (M), so that the real formula for the string’s resonant frequency F0 is F0 = 1 T ⋅ 2L M Other standing waves can also develop, provided they meet the requirement that there must be a node at each end of the string.

Modes of vibration. Because the segments of the second mode are exactly half of the length of first mode, they produce a frequency that is exactly twice the fundamental. If we call the fundamental the first harmonic, then the second mode produces the second harmonic. Similarly, the segments of the third mode are exactly one-third the length of the first mode, so that they produce a third harmonic that is exactly three times the fundamental. The same principles apply to the fourth mode and harmonic, and beyond.
