I read in the book Tesla: Man Out of Time, by Margaret Cheney that he had built a small resonance device that was able to cause a small earthquake, and i don't think it was the mechanical oscillator. I figured this worked through some electrical phenomenon (sp?), but if it worked by the vibration of atoms or molecules, wouldn't the frequency where resonance was achieved vary based on the temperature of the medium? in a solid state wouldn't the frequency be much higher than in a gas, because the gas atoms/molecules would have farther to move.
Re: Does temperature and/or state affect the resonance frequency of a material?
