What do you mean by an open organ pipe?

Expert Answer:

An open organ pipe is open at both the ends (figure).  The air molecules at the ends can easily move out into the open space and are thus free to vibrate with a maximum amplitude.  Therefore, when the air within the pipe vibrates in resonance, an atinode is formed at each end of the pipe.
