A man playing a flute is able to produce notes of different frequencies. If he closes the holes near his mouth, will the pitch of the note produced, increase or decrease ? Give a reason.
Pitch depends on the volume of air that is vibrating
larger volume → lower pitch smaller volume → higher pitch So if he closes the holes near his mouth, the volume of air column will be less. ∴ Pitch will increase.
