Fundamental Frequency Formula
The following formula is used to calculate a fundamental frequency.
f= v / 2*L
- Where f is the fundamental frequency (hz)
- v is the speed of the wave
- L is the length of the tube the sound wave is traveling through.
Fundamental Frequency Definition
A fundamental frequency is the lowest possible frequency required for a system, usually a tube with sound moving through it, to be resonating.
Fundamental Frequency Example
How to calculate the fundamental frequency of a tube?
- First, determine the speed of the wave.
Calculate the velocity of the sound wave.
- Next, determine the length of the tube.
Measure the length of the tube.
- Finally, calculate the fundamental frequency.
Calculate the frequency using the formula above.
A fundamental frequency is the lowest frequency of the system that is resonating. This frequency is used in both physics and music.
The fundamental frequency is calculated using the formula f = v/2*L where v is the speed of the sound wave, and L is the length of a tube or device the wave is traveling through.
