    • Abstract:
      The article deals with questions related to a paper published by Hermann von Helmhotz titled "On the Action of the Strings of a Violin" that appeared in the proceedings of the Glasgow Philosophical Society in 1860. Two physical facts underlie the action of the bowed string. First is that sliding friction is less than static friction and that change from one to the other almost ends up abruptly. The second is that the flexible string in tension has succession modes of vibration whose frequencies are almost exact whole-number multiples of the lowest frequency.
