Question: The size of your eardrum the tympanum see Fig 1

The size of your eardrum (the tympanum; see Fig. 1 in Insight 14.2, The Physiology and Physics of the Ear and Hearing) partially determines the upper frequency limit of your audible region, usually between 16 000 Hz and 20 000 Hz. If the wavelength is on the order of twice the diameter of the eardrum and the air temperature is 20 oC, how wide is your eardrum? Is your answer reasonable?
