16.52: (a) The length of the string is , 10 L d = so its third harmonic has frequency . 3 2 1 string 3 μ F f d = The stopped pipe has length L , so its first harmonic has frequency . 4 pipe 1 L v f s = Equating these and using . 3600 1 gives 10 2 s μv F L d = = (b) If the tension is doubled, all the frequencies of the string will increase by a factor of 2 . In particular, the third harmonic of the string will no longer be in resonance with the first harmonic of the pipe because the frequencies will no longer match, so the sound

Unformatted text preview: produced by the instrument will be diminished. (c) The string will be in resonance with a standing wave in the pipe when their frequencies are equal. Using string 1 pipe 1 3 f f = , the frequencies of the pipe are string 1 pipe 1 3 nf nf = , (where n =1, 3, 5). Setting this equal to the frequencies of the string , string 1 f n the harmonics of the string are ,... 15 , 9 , 3 3 = = n n...
