Homework Help: Physics !

Posted by Lindsay on Tuesday, January 26, 2010 at 1:39pm.

Sound enters the ear, travels through the auditory canal, and reaches the eardrum. The auditory canal is approximately a tube open at only one end. The other end is closed by the eardrum. A typical length for the auditory canal in an adult is about 2.6 cm. If the speed of sound is 338 m/s. What is the fundamental frequency of the canal? (Interestingly, the fundamental frequency is in the frequency range where human hearing is most sensitive.)
