diameter of wire = d= 0.37 mm = 0.00037 m
Area of wire= pi d ^2 /4= 1.075E-07 m^2
mass of steel string = volume ...
The solution calculates the wave speed in the guitar string.
Sound Waves: Standing Waves & Beats
1. Organ pipe A, with both ends open, has a fundamental frequency of 300 Hz. The third harmonic of organ pipe B, with one end open, has the same frequency as the second harmonic of pipe A. How long are (a) pipe A and (b) pipe B?
2. A tuning fork of unknown frequency makes 3.00 beats per second with a standard fork of frequency 384 Hz. The beat frequency decreases when a small piece of wax is put on a prong of the first fork. What is the frequency of this fork?View Full Posting Details
