An open organ pipe (i.e., a pipe open at both ends) of length L_{0}has a fundamental frequency f_{0}.

Part A

If the organ pipe is cut in half, what is the new fundamental frequency?

4f_{0}

2f_{0}

f_{0}

f_{0}

f_{0}

Part B

Part C

This part will be visible after you complete previous item(s).

2. Relevant equations

f=v/2L

3. The attempt at a solution

I am really confused by the standing waves and fundamental frequencies. The book does not do a good job explaining how this all works.

Anyways...for this individual problem I was thinking it might be 2f_{0}.

if L is half as long, then the frequency is twice as big?
