Question

Standing Waves: You put a mass of 400 g on the string. (The string is 50 cm long and weights 12.5 g)

What distance between adjacent nodes do you then expect for a frequency of 100 Hz? (Use g = 10 m/s2)

Step 1 help_outlineImage TranscriptioncloseDistance between two adjacent nodes is half of the wavelength of the wave. The wave equation is, Here, v is the speed of the wave, A is the wavelength and f is the frequency of the wave The speed of propagation of wave in a string is given by T 1= Here, T is the tension in the string and u is the linear mass density Equate the above two equations T af T 1 1 (1) 2 fullscreen
