  1. Jul 28, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    A 3.0 organ pipe is open at both ends. The velocity of sound is 331 m/s. What is the wavelength of the lowest frequency?


    2. Relevant equations
    am i missing something...i need a lil help here!!


    3. The attempt at a solution

    wavelength=2L/n fn=V/wavelength(n)=n(V/2L)=nf1
    n(331)/(2)(3.0) ????
