Fundamental Frequency Calculator

Enter the speed of the wave and the length a tube the wave is traveling through into the calculator to determine the fundamental frequency of the tube.

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 travelling 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?

  1. First, determine the speed of the wave.

    Calculate the velocity of the sound wave.

  2. Next, determine the length of the tube.

    Measure the length of the tube.

  3. Finally, calculate the fundamental frequency.

    Calculate the frequency using the formula above.

FAQ

What is a fundamental frequency?

A fundamental frequency is the lowest frequency of system that is resonating. This frequency is used in both physics and music.

How is fundamental frequency calculated?

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.
