A steel cable is stretched across a gorge. The cable is 190 m long and has a mass of 44 kg. When one end of the cable is struck with a hammer, a wave pulse travels down the cable, reflects at the far end, and is detected back at the first end 14 s later. What is the speed of the wave?

I couldn't calculate force in this which i believe is necessary
