# Guitar String: Speed and Frequency

Not what you're looking for?

One of the 63.5-cm-long strings of an ordinary guitar is tuned to produce the note B_3 (frequency 245 Hz when vibrating in its fundamental mode.

a). Find the speed of transverse waves on this string.

b). If the tension in this string is increased by 1.0%, what will be the new fundamental frequency of the string?

c). If the speed of sound in the surrounding air is 344 m/s, find the frequency of the sound wave produced in the air by the vibration of the {B_3} string.

d). If the speed of sound in the surrounding air is 344 m/s, find the wavelength of the sound wave produced in the air by the vibration of the { B_3} string.
