A uniform heavy rope hangs freely from a support. the support is made to oscillate horizontally with a small amplitude so as to send transverse waves down the rope.A standing wave is set up as these waves are reflected at the free end.Which of the following statements is / are correct?

1. the tension is the same throught the rope

2the wavelength is the same throughout the rope

3the frequency of oscillation is the same at all vibrating points of the rope

(please give your explanation of your ans)
