Former theories of the production of edge tones are reviewed and a new theory is put forward which accounts in a qualitative manner for the phenomena described in the preceding paper. The effect of the wake of a disturbance on the portion of the jet immediately following it is considered, and it is concluded that the compressibility and structure of the surrounding medium must be taken into account, and that, for low velocities, wake disturbance is the controlling factor, whilst for higher velocities the effect of the sound emitted must be taken into account. An attempt is made also to account for the differential sensitivity to frequency found in sensitive jets in a former research.
