Sorry! I can't think of many good questions, so I'll just use this one:
What is the ratio of the length of my Bb soprano clarinet (lowest note: concert D3) to that of my sister's Eb alto saxophone (lowest note: concert Db3)? (Assume the instruments abide by equal temperament with concert A4 = 440 Hz, that the speed of sound is 343 m/s, and that my sister somehow got her hands on a straight alto saxophone.) Provide three sig figs.Really guessing but: 138.6 / 146.8 = 0.944?Hopefully my logic isn't too flawed, I'm still kind of rusty. Your turn!We know that for a conical woodwind (like a sax) and for a stopped cylinder (like a clarinet). Substituting the appropriate frequencies gives for the clarinet and for the sax. Dividing those two values gives a ratio of 0.472.
What is the equivalent length with end correction of the neck (2.2 cm long with an 11.8 mm diameter) of a 500 mL empty water bottle? Assume the neck and water bottle body are both cylindrical.
