detailed solution

Correct option is A

For closed organ pipe, third harmonic is 3v4l For open organ pipe, fundamental frequency is v2l'Given, third harmonic for closed organ pipe = fundamental frequency for open organ pipe.∴  3v4l=v2l'⇒l'=4l3×2=2l3where l and l' are the lengths of closed and open organ pipes respectively.∴  =2×203=13.33 cm
