A clarinet can be treated as a resonant tube with one closed end. The fundamental frequency is 147 Hz.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I was able to figure out the length of the clarinet: it is .583 m

BUt the question is to calculate the frequencies of the first three overtones.

Would the overtone equatinos used to find the wavelength be

(wave) = 4(length)

(wave) = 2 (length)

wave = length

Or am I completly off track?
