A pipe, open at one end, has a leng

produces pipe A, open at one end, and pipe B, o

A pipe, open at one end, has a length L. Cutting this pipe crosswise

produces pipe A, open at one end, and pipe B, open at both ends.

a. For what length of pipe A will the third lowest resonant frequency of pipe A be equal

to the lowest resonant frequency of pipe B?

2. Relevant equations

v = (lambda)(f)

5th harmonic of A, f = (5v)/(4L)

1st Harmonic of B, f = v/2L

3. The attempt at a solution

I've been fairly stumped by this one. I don't get exactly how to set it up. I tried setting the frequencies equal to each other, but it doesn't work.
