A string is stretched between two supports that are L = 0.9 m apart. It resonates at a frequency of f = 410 Hz with a standing wave pattern that has two nodes between the two supports.
(a) Find the wavelength λ in meters.
(b) Suppose that the tension, T, in the string is increased by a factor of 4. What is the new frequency f' in Hz if the string vibrates with the same standing wave pattern as in the drawing above?
