A speaker is placed at the opening of a long horizontal tube. The speaker oscillates at a frequency of f , creating a sound wave that moves down the tube. The wave moves through the tube at a speed of v = 340.00 m/s . The sound wave is modeled with the wave function s ( x , t ) = s max cos ( k x ω t + ϕ ) . At time t = 0.00 s , an air molecule at x = 2.3 m is at the maximum displacement of 6.34 nm. At the same time, another molecule at x = 2.7 m has a displacement of 2.30 nm. What is the wave function of the sound wave, that is, find the wave number, angular frequency, and the initial phase shift?

s 1 = 6.34 nm s 2 = 2.30 nm k x 1 + ϕ = 0 rad k x 2 + ϕ = 1.20 rad k ( x 2 x 1 ) = 1.20 rad k = 3.00 m −1 ω = 1019.62 s −1 s 1 = s max cos ( k x 1 ϕ ) ϕ = 5.66 rad s ( x , t ) = 6.30 nm cos ( 3.00 m −1 x 1019.62 s −1 t + 5.66 )

A tube filled with water has a valve at the bottom to allow the water to flow out of the tube. As the water is emptied from the tube, the length L of the air column changes. A 1024-Hz tuning fork is placed at the opening of the tube. Water is removed from the tube until the n = 5 mode of a sound wave resonates. What is the length of the air column if the temperature of the air in the room is 18 ° C?

Picture shows a tuning fork placed above the opening of the tube filled with the water. Water is removed from the tube for the distance L.
