Unformatted text preview: us lengths. Each length pipe has a corresponding
fundamental frequency. The speed of sound in air at standard pressure/temperature is around 340 m/s.
What is the length of the longest pipe (producing a fundamental frequency of 20 Hz, the lowest audible
frequency one can hear) and the shortest pipe (producing a fundamental of 20,000 Hz, the highest
audible frequency one can hear)
a. if the pipes are open at both ends
b. one end of a pipe is closed (stopped) and one end is open? (Fun, useless fact: this “stopping” of a
pipe gave us the phrase “pulling out all the stops”.)
