How Does the Violin Make Sound?

Answer

The violin produces a motion that is rich in harmonics through bowing of the string. However, a string alone makes very little sound, the body and bridge of the violin; serve to broadcast some of the vibration power of the string into the atmosphere as sound.

The sound of a Violin is produced by drawing the bow across the strings to make them vibrate, or by plucking the strings. The violin is one of the most used instruments of the modern string family, and happens to be the highest-sounding instrument of that class.
Sound on the violin is produced when the bow is drawn across the strings to make them vibrate, or by pizzicato which means plucking the strings. Every sound comes from a vibration(s), a human being’s voice box vibrates when one talks.
A violin makes sound through vibration by either plucking (known as pizzicato) or using a bow. The bow is normally made from wood (generally Brazilwood or Pernambuco), but many modern bows are also made from a selection of man-made materials such as fiberglass and carbon fibber. The bow is strung with a ribbon of thinly combed horsehair.
