**1. Homework Statement**

"Design a tube closed on one end so that it's lowest frequency standing wave is 440Hz. (i.e. determine the length of the tube."

**2. Homework Equations**

Um...I was unsure.

I thought maybe...I might use w=2(pi)f...and the function 2A sin (kx) cos (wt), but I epically failed on it.

**3. The Attempt at a Solution**

My solution was rather embarrassing, and it acquired me 0/10 points on my exam, thus I went online trying to get help (from Wiki and the sorts), then I found this site, thought I'd try it. :)

The attempt was as follows...

w = 2(pi)f = sqrt(g/L)

I then squared both sides to get (2(pi)f)^2 = g/L

Then simplified to L = g/(2(pi)f)^2) --Hence epic fail, for, come to find out, sqrt(g/l) is for pendulums. --

And now I'm lost. -.-
