1. Homework Statement

A pipe organ playing in a concert produces a 440 Hz signal with a pipe open at both ends.if the ideal temperature is 20degrees, what is the length of the pipe(first harmonic)

2. Homework Equations
f=N/T
f=1/T
v=f*wavelength
sound equation

3. The Attempt at a Solution

332ms*0.59*20
=332ms+0.118ms
=332.118ms
i dont know where to go from there

You know the velocity of sound at 20 degrees C (at least I hope you have the right equation) and you know the frequency. Its simply a matter of rearranging this v=f*wavelength for wavelength.

Also remember that the first harmonic in an open pipe has a wavelength of twice the pipes length.
