Homework Help: Formula for the Length of the pipe.

  1. Feb 26, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    The second overtune for a pipe, open at both ends is 2000 Hz, the speed of the sound is 343 m/s. What is the length of the pipe?

    2. Relevant equations
    • λ = v/f

    3. The attempt at a solution
    λ = v/f = (340 m/s)/(2000 Hz) = 0.17 m

    don't know if this is correct.
    Thanks in advanced.

    You found the wavelength of the sound. How is that related to the length of the pipe?
