Question Description

A standing wave with n=7 in a pipe 0.50 m in length and filled with air has a top open to the air and the bottom closed? I want to calculate the frequency created by this standing wave assuming the air is at room temperature. How can I do this?

λ = c / f = wave speed

Wave length=7


Convert the wavelength to meters before using λν = c

  =7.00 x 108 m ¯1

Applying the formula, λ = c / f, where by c=height,

Wavelength==7.00 x 108 m ¯1

F= λ /c=7.00 x 108 m ¯1 /0.5

Answer,F=14 x108 Hz.

...............Thank and good luck........
