It rings like a bell.

If you want really hard-core physics info, throw some
physics buzzwords into the search:


If by any chance you are interested in the resonance of
the _air_ inside the vessel (as opposed to the deflection
of the solid walls of the vessel) that is much simpler.
Treat it as a Helmholtz resonator. A good reference is
the book _On the Sensations of Tone_ by some guy named
Helmholtz. It's readily available as a Dover reprint.
