Can anyone direct me to a formula/table that will tell me what length to cut a metal pipe to make a chime with a predetermined pitch? They need to make a set of chimes.

These chimes will be mounted and struck like orchestra chimes (these aren't wind chimes). I seem to find formulas to determine frequency of the internal air column but that would be more appropriate to a flute. They need to build one diatonic octave (C to C) with an added Bb.
I know how I personally would build such a thing, but the teacher would like a more structured approach.
