# In a resonance column experiment, a tuning fork of frequency 400 Hz is used. The first resonance is observed when the air column has a length of 20.0 cm and the second resonance is observed when the air column has a length of 62.0 cm. (a) Find the speed of sound in air. (b) How much distance above the open end does the pressure node form?

Given:
Length of air column at first resonance
L1 = 20 cm = 0.2 m
Length of air column at second resonance
L2 = 62 cm = 0.62 m
Frequency of tuning fork

(a) We know that:

Where, v is the speed of the sound in air.

So,

Therefore, the speed of the sound in air is 336 m/s.

(b) Distance of open node is d:

Therefore, the required distance is 1 cm.
