#### Solution

Given:

Velocity of sound in air *v* = 324 ms^{−1}

Let* **l* be the length of the resonating column.

Then, the frequencies of the two successive resonances will be \[\frac{(n + 2)v}{4I} \text { and } \frac{nv}{4I}\]

As per the question,

\[\frac{\left( n + 2 \right)v}{4l}\]= 2592

\[\frac{nv}{4l}\]= 1944

So ,

\[\frac{(n + 2)v}{4l} - \frac{nv}{4I} = 2592 - 1944 = 648\]

\[ \Rightarrow \frac{2v}{4l} = 648\]

\[ \Rightarrow l = \frac{2 \times 324 \times 100}{4 \times 648}\text { cm } = 25 \text { cm }\]

Hence, the length of the tube is 25 cm.
