Solution

Given that n3 = no
where n3 = frequency of the third overtone of the open pipe
no = fundamental frequency of the closed pipe

Third overtone of open pipe is

`n_3=4(V/(2L_3))`

Fundamental frequency of closed pipe at one end is

`n_o=V/(4L_o)`

`V/(4L_o)=4(V/(2L_3)) `..........(∵ no=n3)

`thereforeL_o/L_3=1/8`

`therefore L_0:L_3=1:8`
