Homework Help: Standing Waves Under Boundary Conditions

  1. Feb 26, 2015 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    See the figure below. A thin pipe, open arrow-10x10.png at both ends, with length 0.400 m and 1.0 cm diameter is placed vertically in a cylindrical bucket so that it nearly touches the flat bottom of the bucket, which has an area of 0.100 m2 . The air temperature is 22o C. Water is slowly poured into the bucket until a sounding tuning fork of frequency 440 Hz, held over the pipe, produces resonance. Find the volume of the water in the bucket at this moment. (Assume the same water level in the pipe and in the bucket, as shown in the diagram.)

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    How would you suggest I go about it?

    Look after standing sound waves in tubes, and show your attempt to solve the problem.
