A certain tuning fork vibrates at 800 Hz. If the tuning fork is tapped, causing it to vibrate, then stopped a quarter of a second later, what is the approximate range of frequencies contained in the sound pulse that reached your ears?

You are likely thinking about harmonics. That being the case, 400 and 1600 cps tones can be detected. cps = cycles per second of sound. But, also depending on the quality and material used in their construction, there could be other sympathetic noises as well.
