Physics of Whistling

Almost everyone can whistle and people often do it when they are bored or are whistling along to a song, but how exactly do we whistle? Well, you can only make whistling sounds at the resonance frequencies of your mouth, because at the resonance frequencies the pressure changes due to the moving air. You can change the resonance frequencies by changing the position of your tongue. By moving your tongue up and down, and blowing harder or softer, you can change the pitch and amplitude of your whistle. So if you wish to become very good at whistling you better get that tongue moving.
