Textbook Problem

Balboa Park in San Diego has an outdoor organ. When the air temperature increases, the fundamental frequency of one of the organ pipes (a) increases, (b) decreases, (c) stays the same, or (d) is impossible to determine. (The thermal expansion of the pipe is negligible.)

To determine
The frequency of the organ pipe with increase in temperature.

Explanation

Given Info: Temperature of the air increases, thermal expansion of the pipe is negligible.

Formula to calculate the speed of sound in air is,

v=(331m/s)T/273K

  • v is the speed of sound in air.
  • T is the absolute temperature.

Formula to calculate the speed is,

v=f0λ0

  • f0 is the fundamental frequency
  • λ0 is the fundamental wave length

Fundamental Wave length changes only when the length of the organ pipe changes
