A tuning fork is used to produce resonance in a glass tube. The length of the air column in this tube can be adjusted by a variable piston. At room temperature of $$27^{\circ}\mathrm{C}$$, to successive resonances are produced at $$20$$ cm and $$73$$ cm column length. If the frequency of the tuning fork is $$320$$ Hz, the velocity of sound in air at $$27^{\circ}\mathrm{C}$$ is:

 1 $$330$$ m/s 2 $$339$$ m/s 3 $$350$$ m/s 4 $$300$$ m/s

A uniform rope of length L and mass m1 hangs vertically from a rigid support. A block of mass m2 is attached to the free end of the ropes. A transverse pulse of wavelength λ1 is produced at the lower end of the rope. The wavelength of the pulse when it reaches the top of the rope is λ2. The ratio λ21 is-

1. $\sqrt{\frac{{m}_{1}+{m}_{2}}{{m}_{2}}}$

2. $\sqrt{\frac{{m}_{2}}{{m}_{1}}}$

3. $\sqrt{\frac{{m}_{1}+{m}_{2}}{{m}_{1}}}$

4. $\sqrt{\frac{{m}_{1}}{{m}_{2}}}$
