An organ pipe is closed at one end has fundamental frequency of 1500 Hz. The maximum number of overtones generated by this pipe which a normal person can hear is : 

(1) 14

(2) 13

(3) 6

(4) 9

(3) Critical hearing frequency for a person is 20,000Hz.

If a closed pipe vibration in Nth mode then frequency of vibration n=(2N1)v4l=(2N1)n1

(where n1 = fundamental frequency of vibration)

Hence 20,000 =(2N1)×1500N=7.17

Also, in closed pipe

Number of over tones = (No. of mode of vibration) – 1

= 7 – 1 = 6.
