A pipe closed on one end with a specific length and containing a specific gas at a specific temperature will have a set of resonant frequencies or partials. The lowest frequency of that set is called the fundamental and all the others (which will be higher) are called overtones. The length of the pipe is 1/4 of the wavelength of the fundamental, neglecting ...


However interesting, your question is probably too broad. When it comes to perception (so not just simple objective values), this topic is actually not perfectly understood in general. Always remember, that perception of any parameter of the sound is nonlinear and dependent on other parameters (e.g. you need to consider a pitch of the tone, when you ...
