why does a tuning fork have 2 prongs?

Asked by rajarambhoote | 5th Dec, 2017, 09:12: PM

Expert Answer:

The two prongs of tuning fork oscillate in in out phase mode like coming towards each other and going away from each other.
In this way, the oscillations are not lost to the hand by which we hold it. That is it reduces the damping.
