On a string instrument of the violin family, the effective length of a string is the distance between the bridge and the nut.
For a violin, this distance is 30 cm, while for a cello it is 36.6 cm.
The string of a violin is placed in a cello with the intention of producing a sound of the same fundamental frequency.
To accomplish this, the string on the cello will be under a larger tension than on the violin.
By how much should the tension in the cello be increased with respect to the tension in the violin?
Express the result as a percentage, and to two significant figures. Only answer in numerical values, without the % sign.
For example, an increase of 11% corresponds to Tcello = (1.11) Tviolin, and should be entered as 11 in the answer box.
ANY! help would be appreciated.
