Please help me solve this problem?
An oboe and a double bass are playing the same note, a "G" at 392 Hz. The speed of sound in air is 343 m/s and the speed of propagation of a wave on the string of the double bass is 500 m/s. The oboe can be modeled as a pipe, open at one end, and the bass as a string fixed at both ends.
What are the lengths of the bass string and the oboe cavity if the note being produced is a result of the fundamental mode in each case?
