What is the shortest air column, closed at one end, that will resonate at a frequency of 440 Hz when the speed of sound is 344 m/s? I tried using the wavelength= v/f formula, but I keep getting the wrong answer...

well you can calculate the wavelength. But how does that wavelength relate to the column of air?

...and it depends if it is open or closed. Yours is closed. This might help you: http://hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu/hbase/waves/opecol.html

I still don't really know what to do :( I don't know how the length of the column relates to anything
