A string is tied across the opening of a deep well, at a height 5 m above the water level. The string has length 7.51m and linear density 4.17 g/m; any time there is a wind, the string vibrates like mad. The speed of sound in air is 343 m/s. Assuming that the resonance causing this vibration involves the lowest harmonics of both the string and the well, calculate the string's tension. Answer in units of N.
