Harmonic
Sinusoidal term of the Fourier series expansion of a periodic function. The harmonic (or harmonic component) of the nth order is characterised by:
Yn is the rms value of the given harmonic component,
w is the angular frequency of the fundamental, related to frequency by :
w = 2¼f;
phin is the phase angle of the given harmonic component at t = 0.
Harmonics (current and voltage)
All alternating current which is not absolutely sinusoidal is made up of a fundamental and a certain number of current harmonics which are the cause of its deformation (distortion) when compared to the theoretical sine-wave. For each current harmonic of order n and an rms value In, there is a voltage harmonic with an rms value Un. If Zsn is the voltage source output impedance for the harmonic of the nth order, then: Un = Zsn x In

Harmonic
An integral multiple of the fundamental frequency (60 Hz) that becomes a component of the current (see \"Harmonic Distortion\").
Harmonic Distortion
Distortion of an AC waveform caused by multiples of the fundamental frequency (harmonics). Odd triplet harmonics (thirds, ninths, etc.) may result in large currents on the neutral line in a four-wire Wye three-phase system.

een muzikant zegt me spontaan \"boventonen\", maar het probleem is, dat Van Dale dat niet overtuigend weergeeft en dat bij een Google search het begrip boventonen binnen de muziek voor iets anders gereserveerd lijkt te zijn.

disagree  Sven Petersson: An error in van Dale? Which edition?

-> 1995; this wouldn't have changed since then, would it? I first looked up overtone of course, and didn't find it. So I'm a bit surprised and still think, that ondertonen is the best choice in general texts, while harmonischen (ugly word) is for specialized

Hoe groter the kamfactor, des te meer energie wordt er vastgehouden in de hogere flageoletten.

Explanation:
I have the strong impression that this conerns string instruments like guitar, lute and possibly even the violin. In that case, "harmonics" refer to what guitar and lute players call "flageoletten".

Reference: in my 'pre-translation' life, I studied and played the classical guitar and lute.

Hope this helps! Best wishes and a Happy Easter from Klaas.
