Unformatted text preview: organ pipes with helium gas. The velocity of sound in helium is larger than the velocity of sound in air by a factor of v helium / v air = 2.9. How will your prank aFect the tones produced by the organ? Note : An experiment similar to this one is often performed at carnivals, when a performer ±lls his vocal tract with helium gas and then demonstrates his new voice. The pitch of the human voice is determined by the frequencies of standing waves in the vocal tract. There will be no change 1. The notes will all go down in frequency by this factor 2. The notes will all go up in frequency by this factor 3. ____________________ [weight: 1] 3 OK Logout ajcg 220/fall2011 Reading_Quiz Problem Listing https://chip.physics.purdue.edu/cgi-bin/220/fall2011/Inst. .. 1 of 1 12/07/2011 03:10 PM...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
