An air column in a pipe, which is closed at one end, will be in resonance with a vibrating tuning fork of frequency 264 Hz if the length of the column in cm is :
A tube, closed at one end and containing air, produces, when excited, the fundamental note of frequency 512 Hz. If the tube is open at both ends the fundamental frequency that can be excited is (in Hz)
The displacement of particles in a string stretched in the xdirection is represented by y. Among the following expressions for y, those describing wave motion are :
An organ pipe P_{1} closed at one end vibrating in its first harmonic and another pipe P_{2} open at ends vibrating in its third harmonic are in resonance with a given tuning fork.
The ratio of the length of P_{1} to that of P_{2} is
Velocity of sound in air is 320 m/s. A pipe closed at one end has a length of 1 m. Neglecting end corrections, the air column in the pipe can resonate for sound of frequency :
A wave is represented by the equation

Two identical straight wires are stretched so as to produce 6 beats per second when vibrating simultaneously. On changing the tension slightly in one of them, the beat frequency remains unchanged. Denoting by T_{1} , T_{2} the higher and the lower initial tension in the strings, then it could be said that while making the above changes in tension,
The displacement y of a particle executing periodic motion is given by
This expression may be considereed to be a result of the superposition of

A string of length 0.4 m and mass 10^{–2} kg is tightly clamped at its ends. The tension in the string is 1.6 N. Identical wave pulses are produced at one end at equal intervals of time, Δt. The minimum value of Δt which allows constructive interference between successive pulses is
The (x, y) coordinates of the corners of a square plate are (0, 0), (L, 0), (L, L) and (0, L). The edges of the plate are clamped and transverse standing waves are set up in it.

A student performed the experiment to measure the speed of sound in air using resonance aircolumn method. Two resonances in the aircolumn were obtained by lowering the water level. The resonance with the shorter aircolumn is the first resonance and that with the longer aircolumn is the second resonance. Then,
A person blows into openend of a long pipe. As a result, a high pressure pulse of air travels down the pipe.
When this pulse reaches the other end of the pipe,

Two loudspeakers M and N are located 20 m apart and emit sound at frequencies 118 Hz and 121 Hz, respectively. A car is initially at a point P , 1800 m away from the midpoint Q of the line MN and moves towards Q constantly at 60 km/hr along the perpendicular bisector of MN. It crosses Q and eventually reaches a point R, 1800 m away from Q. Let v(t) represent the beat frequency measured by a person sitting in the car at time t. Let v_{P} , v_{Q} and v_{R} be the beat frequencies measured at locations P, Q and R, respectively. The speed of sound in air is 330 ms^{–1}.
