How Do Pianos Make Sound?

Answer

Pianos produce different sounds through the vibration of the tension string in a hollow wooden compartment (soundboard). When a key is pressed there is a hummer that will hit one or two or three tensioned strings (depending on the note), causing a vibration of the strings. After the strings have vibrated, the overtones of the sound produced will combine together to create a sound that is amplified by the soundboard. The sound that is amplified by the soundboard is the final sound that will be produced by a keyboard.
