A ski gondola is connected to the top of a hill by a steel cable of length 720 m and diameter 1.3 cm. As the gondola comes to the end of its run, it bumps into the terminal and sends a wave pulse along the cable. It is observed that it took 14 s for the pulse to return.

What is the speed of the pulse?

What is the tension in the cable?
