Problem 17.88

A piccolo and a flute can be approximated as cylindrical tubes with both ends open. The lowest fundamental frequency produced by one kind of piccolo is 587.3 Hz, and that produced by one kind of flute is 261.6 Hz. What is the ratio of the piccolos length to the flutes length?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

The Way We Were Ptolemy ● in his time, there was no difference between astronomer and astrologer ○ astronomy = cold, objective study of what’s up there ○ astrology = “weird mess” ○ telescopes vs. horoscopes ● ptolemy was wrong = first people to study nature in a serious way ○ people now have past discoveries to stand on, so we’re farther along than they were ● 7 days in a week = all ancient cultures had a 7 day work week tied to astronomy ● with all the lights we have now, it’s hard to see stars ○ in ptolemy’s time, you could see 10,000 stars ○ they would move in perfect regularity… never changing or modifying ○ every night, all 10,000 stars would move in patterns called conste
