Resonance in Open End Air Columns Video Tutorial

The Resonance in Open End Air Columns Video Tutorial explains what an open-end air column is and how it resonates to form a standing wave pattern. The mathematical relationships between column length and wavelength and between wavelengths and frequencies of the various harmonics are discussed. Numerous examples, illustrations, and animations assist in the explanations. The video lesson answers the following questions:

  1. How do you draw the standing wave patterns for the various harmonics of an open-end air column?
  2. How are the frequencies and wavelengths for the various harmonics related?
