Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Rachel on Wednesday, January 26, 2011 at 6:31pm.

An organ pipe open at both ends has a harmonic with a frequency of 480 Hz. The next higher harmonic in the pipe has a frequency of 540 Hz.
Calculate the frequency of the fundamental and the length of the pipe.

I know 540/480 is 9/8. I have no idea where to go from here.
