The air at the mouth of a closed pipe can move freely, whereas the air at the far end cannot move at all. Thus the lowest (fundamental) frequency of such pipes is determined by the length of a wave that travels up to the top, produces increased pressure, and travels back down the pipe to produce outward motion of air at the mouth.
58. sachin526. Frequencies in a closed organ pipe are - v/4L, 3v/4L, 7v/4L etc. For first overtone, frequency = 3 x 1500 = 4500 Hz. For second overtone, frequency = 5 x 1500 = 7500 Hz. For third overtone, frequency = 7 x 1500 = 10500 Hz. As we go on, the sixth overtone is 13 x 1500 = 19500 Hz.

Organ pipes are like every other wind instrument: their pitch varies with the temperature. When the air is cool, pipes will sound flat. When the air is warm, pipes will sound sharp. This is because the air inside the pipe is less dense when it is warm and therefore oscillates faster. Expansion and contraction of the pipe metal itself is negligible.
Perfect for situations where available space is an issue. The Kienle Compact requires very little room, but delivers a wave of sound as big as any large church organ. Sound resonating upward through the pipes is dispersed throughout the room in the same way as a conventional pipe organ. Low frequencies are handled through a down-firing subwoofer.
The fundamental pitch of the organ is 8' = 64Hz. 16' = 32Hz (normally near the bottom range of a sub), 32' = 16Hz and 64' = 8Hz. There is a digital organ with a 128' = 4Hz stop and the bass on that is reproduced by a Rotary Sub-Woofer.
Problem 63 Hard Difficulty. An organ pipe has two successive harmonics with frequencies 1372 and 1764 Hz. (a) Is this an open or a stopped pipe? Explain. (b) What two harmonics are these?
