Sound wave questions

  1. Sep 24, 2008 #1
    I have a closed end tube that is 23.75" in length, .905" in OD and .222" in ID.

    What I am trying to do is replicate what is done on an organ flue pipe with an adjustable length collar and try to tune the pipe for a certain frequency.

    My collar ID is .905" or .683" larger than the tube's hole.

    The tube resonates at about 311 hz.

    My questions are

    Is the aperture too big?

    Will a tuning fork work to find the most resonant point while sliding the collar out, similar to a resonance tube?

    Thanks so much.
