The diagram represents a snapshot of a standing transverse wave on a flexible guitar string taken when the displacement is at a maximum. (Note: the vertical scale is very exaggerated, the actual sideways displacement of the string is negligibly TINY compared to the length of the string!) The string is 1.00 m long with tension 6.00 N. The total mass of the string is 0.012 kg.

What is the formula?

is it "velocity = sqrt(Tension/mu)"

or not?
