  • In the organ pipe - as in the common whistle - a thin sheet of air is forced through a narrow slit at the bottom of the embouchure and impinges against the top edge, which is made very p c. sharp. The disturbance made at the commencement of the blowing will no doubt set the air in the pipe vibrating in its own natural period, just as any irregular air disturbance will set a suspended body swinging in its natural period, but we are to consider how the vibration is maintained when once set going.
