Physics Problem!

  1. Oct 10, 2007 #1

    I'm new here, so I don't really know how this works, but if someone could help me solve this physics problem, that would be great!

    An air column open at both ends, has a fundamental frequency of 2000 Hz. What are the frequencies of the first two overtones?

    I have been stuck on this problem for a while, and can't seem to figure it out! Could someone please explain it to me? Thanks!!

    What is the definition of an overtone?
