    You are a roadie (a technical assistant) to a legendary pink guitar player Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein. During a concert, he breaks the low C string on his guitar. You are asked to restring it. When plucked it is supposed to have a fundamental frequency of f1=131Hz. When placed on the guitar, the string will have a length of 70cm. The linear mass density of the string if 0.007 kg/m. In order to tune the guitar, the tension in the string is adjusted. What must the tension be?
