Frequency of sound involving bamboo flutes

  1. Sep 3, 2015 #1
    Dear all,

    I have been attempting to create a range of bamboo flutes with different lengths for my physics practical. I am trying to calculate the theoretical frequency that should be produced by a particular length of flute, but all my flutes have different diamaters and I am searching for an equation that takes into account the diameter of the flute as well as the length of the flute to produce a particular frequency. Can anyone help me?

    As this is a practical project, have you experimented with flutes of the same length and different diameters?

    Ah! Well that is one I have not tried.
