ISBN 9781938168000 # You are given two wind instruments of identical length. One is open at both ends, whereas the other is closed at one end. Which is able to producethe lowest frequency?

A wind instrument that is closed at one end will produce the lowest frequency

See the step by step solution

## Step 1:   Frequency for one side closed instrument

Fundamental frequency for one side closed instrument given as

$f=\frac{v}{4L}$

Here $f,v,L$ represents frequency, the velocity of the sound wave, and the length of the instrument

## Step 2: Frequency for both sides of the open instrument

Fundamental frequency for two sides opened instrument given as

$f=\frac{v}{2L}$

Here $f,v,L$ represents frequency, the velocity of the sound wave, and the length of the instrument

## Step 3: Conclusion

We can see that frequency of one side closed instrument will be the lowest. ### Want to see more solutions like these?
