in a wave what are overtones?

Expert Answer:

The frequency after the fundamental requency is the first overtone.

Fundamental frequence = n = [1/2l ] [ square root of ( T / M ) ]

1st Overtone :  2n  . this is also the 2nd Harmonic

2nd overtone : 3n

and so on.

these are the multiples of the fundamental frequency
