A man playing a flute is able to produce notes of different frequencies. If he closes the holes near his mouth, will the pitch of the note produced, increase or decrease? Give reasons.

Expert Answer:

Pitch will increase, if we close the near hole frequency will increase as the wavelength of the sound wave will decrease, and frequency of the sound wave is inversely propotional to wavelength, so lesser the wavelength more will be pitch.
