Question

To practice Problem-Solving Strategy 16.1 Standing waves. An air-filled pipe is found to have successive harmonics at 800 HzHz , 1120 HzHz , and 1440 HzHz . It is unknown whether harmonics below 800 HzHz and above 1440 HzHz exist in the pipe. What is the length of the pipe

Answer:Length of the pipe = 53.125 cmExplanation:given dataharmonic frequency f1 = 800 Hz

harmonic frequency f2 = 1120 Hz

harmonic frequency f3 = 1440 Hz

solutionfirst we get here fundamental frequency that is express as

2F = f2 – f1 ……………1

put here value

2F = 1120 – 800

F = 160 Hz

and

Wavelength is express as

Wavelength = Speed ÷ Fundamental frequency …………….2

here speed of waves in air = 340 m/s

so put here value

Wavelength =340 ÷ 160

Wavelength = 2.125 m

so

Length of the pipe will be

Length of the pipe = 0.25 × wavelength ………………….3

put here value

Length of the pipe = 0.25 × 2.125

Length of the pipe = 0.53125 m

Length of the pipe = 53.125 cm
