I have noticed in all my dealings with faucets that the tone of the water as it
flows from the tap changes as the temperature changes. Specifically, when one
turns on the hot water, it initially comes out cold, making a relative low tone;
as the water temperature rises, the pitch of the tone increases. Why is this?
