    Answer:

    The  value is  l  =  8.58 \  m

    Explanation:

    From the question we are told that

      The  frequencies of two successive harmonics  is  f_ a = 220 \  Hz , f_b  =  240 \ Hz

       The  speed of sound in the air is  v  =  343 \ m/s

    Generally a harmonic frequency is mathematically represented as

            f_n  =  \frac{n  *  v }{2l}

    here l is the length of the pipe

    n is the order of position of the harmonics

     Now since we do not know the order of the given harmonic frequencies but we are told that they are successive then the frequencies can be mathematically represented as

         220 =  \frac{n * v}{ 2 l }

    and

         240  =  \frac{ (n+1 ) v }{2l}

    So  

        240 - 220  =  \frac{ (n+1 ) v }{2l}  - \frac{n * v}{ 2 l }

       20  =  \frac{v}{2l}

    =>   l  =  8.58 \  m
