## Homework Statement

A tuning fork is held over the top of a graduated cylinder that is slowly filled with water. Resonances are noted when the water level is 56.5cm and 17.5cm below the rim. Note that there is an end correction , meaning that the effective length of the air column is longer than the observed length by a fixed constant amount. If the speed of sound is 343m/s, then find the frequency of the tuning fork.

## Homework Equations

f = v/lambda

1st resonance = lambda/4

2nd resonance = 3lambda/4

## The Attempt at a Solution

I drew the cylinders. One cylinder is 56.5 cm below the rim and the other is 17.5cm below the rim. The first cylinder is at the second resonance of 3lambda/4 and the second is lamda/4. Now i don't know what to do. Can someone guide me?

thanks
