(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

In the experiment of the determination of the speed of sound in air using the resonance column method the length of the air column that resonantes in the fundamental mode with a tuning fork is 0.1m. When this length is changed to 0.35m, the same tuning fork resonates with the first overtone. Calculate the end correction.

In a resonance tube, a tuning fork of 512 hz resonates with the tube. The first resonance gives a 30.7cm rise of water level and the second one gives 63.2 cm rise. Calculate the error in calculating the velocity of sound in air.

2. Relevant equations

[tex]\nu = (2n-1)v/4L or \nu =nv/2L[/tex]

3. The attempt at a solution

I dont know what the end correction is or what the resonance air column method is. Is the pipe open at both ends or at just one end? And what do they mean by end correction. If someone could explain the experiment to me, I could probably solve the question.
