Two pieces of steel wire with identical cross-sections have lengths of L and 2L. Each of the wires is fixed at both ends and stretched so that the tension in the longer wire is three times greater than that in the shorter wire. If the fundamental frequency in the shorter wire is 64.1 Hz, what is the frequency of the second harmonic in the longer wire?
