16.31 . You blow across the open mouth of an empty test tube and produce the fundamental standing wave of the air column inside the test tube. The speed of sound in air is 344 m>s and the test tube acts as a stopped pipe. (a) If the length of the air column in the test tube is 14.0 cm what is the frequency of this standing wave? (b) What is the frequency of the fundamental standing wave in the air column if the test tube is half filled with water?

I have not created a lesson for this question yet.

Please leave a comment below with specifics about the question, and I will make a detailed lesson on it as soon as possible. (I can usually have something up within a day.)

NEED IMMEDIATE HELP? Get the student solution manual here: University Physics Manual otherwise, I should be able to get a video lesson up within a day or so.
