Stretched wire  Finding the frequency of oscillation
A wire of density 9gm/cm^3 is stretched between two clamps 100cm apart subjected to an extension of 0.05 cm. What is the lowest frequency of transverse vibrations in the wire, assuming the Young's modulus to be 9x10^11 dynes/cm^ ?

Solution Preview
Length of the wire, L = 100cm
Extension dL = 0.05cm
therefore strain in the wire = dL/L
= 0.05/100 ...
Solution Summary
The problem is solved giving all necessary mathematical steps. It will enable you to do similar problems yourself.
