Law of Variation of Atomic Pitch by Electricity and Magnetism

Law of Variation of Atomic Pitch by Electricity and Magnetism

"Electricity and Magnetism produce internal vibrations in the atom, which are followed by proportional changes in volume and, therefore, pitch." [Keely, 1893]

Commentary October, 2017
A good illustration of this phenomenon is the shrinking of diameter of a quarter subjected to high electric power:

Of course any physical change in diameter will result in a change of pitch. Same for lengths of vibrating strings and depth and diameter of organ pipes.
