(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A flutist assembles her flute in a room where the speed of sound is 340 m/s. When she plays the note A, it is in perfect tune with a 440 Hz tuning fork. After a few minutes, the air inside her flute has warmed to where the speed of sound is 347 .

How many beats per second will she hear if she now plays the note A as the tuning fork is sounded?

How far does she need to extend the "tuning joint" of her flute to be in tune with the tuning fork?

2. Relevant equations

f(beat) = 2f(mod) = 2 * (omega(mod))/(2pi) = f(1) - f(2)

3. The attempt at a solution

Ill get back with you on this
