Krigar-Menzel law

Krigar-Menzel law

[¦krē·gər ′menz·əl ‚lȯ]
(mechanics)
A generalization of the second Young-Helmholtz law which states that when a string is bowed at a point which is at a distance of p/q times the string's length from one of the ends, where p and q are relative primes, then the string moves back and forth with two constant velocities, one of which is q- 1 times as large as the other.
