    • Abstract:
      The article provides information on the components of a violin and explains the scientific principles governing its ability to generate sound. A violin is made up of a set of strings attached to a wooden box with an almost closed air space. Drawing a bow across the strings induces vibrations. Energy from vibrations is then transmitted to the box and the air space. A front plate and a back plate which are slightly arched outward make up the sounding box.
