Concordant; musical; consonant; as, harmonic sounds.

Relating to harmony, -- as melodic relates to melody; harmonious; esp., relating to the accessory sounds or overtones which accompany the predominant and apparent single tone of any string or sonorous body.

Having relations or properties bearing some resemblance to those of musical consonances; -- said of certain numbers, ratios, proportions, points, lines, motions, and the like.

A musical note produced by a number of vibrations which is a multiple of the number producing some other; an overtone. See Harmonics.

Also called overtones, these are vibrations at frequencies that are multiples of the fundamental. Harmonics extend without limit beyond the audible range. They are characterized as even-order and odd-order harmonics. A second-order harmonic is two times the frequency of the fundamental; a third order is three times the fundamental; a fourth order is four times the fundamental; and so forth. Each even-order harmonic: second, fourth, sixth, etc.-is one octave or multiples of one octave higher than the fundamental; these even-order overtones are therefore musically related to the fundamental. Odd-order harmonics, on the other hand: third, fifth, seventh, and up-create a series of notes that are not related to any octave overtones and therefore may have an unpleasant sound. Audio systems that emphasize odd-order harmonics tend to have a harsh, hard quality.

A weaker overtone or undertone of the original note responsible for the character of the note.

A frequency that is a multiple of another frequency. Thus frequencies of 200 kHz and 400 kHz would be harmonic.

An integer multiple of a reference (fundamental) frequency.

A signal component that has an integer multiple frequency of a fundamental frequency component.

A frequency that resonates in response to a fundamental (primary) freuency. Sometimes, when a certain frequency is fenerated (a fundamental), it will also cause another frequency or frequencies to start as well. These are called harmonics.

For example, the motion of a taut, gently plucked violin string is the superposition of sinusoidal motions with frequencies Ï‰0, Ï‰1 = 2Ï‰0, Ï‰2, 3Ï‰0, . . . where Ï‰0 is the fundamental frequency and Ï‰1, Ï‰2, . . . are the harmonics (or overtones), resulting in a harmonious composite sound. 2.
