Textbook Problem

A piano siring of mass per unit length 5.00 × 10−3 kg/m is under a tension of 1 350 N. Find the speed with which a wave travels on this string.

To determine
The speed of the wave on the string.

Explanation

Given info: The piano string has mass per unit length 5.00×103kgm-1 . The tension on the string is 350 N.

The wave speed in a stretched string is given as,

v=Fμ (1)

  • v is the wave speed
  • F is the tension in the string
  • μ is the mass of the string per unit length or the linear density of the string

Substituting μ=5.00×103kgm-1
