Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Reza on Friday, April 13, 2012 at 6:00pm.

A harpsichord string of length 1.50 m and linear mass density 26.0 mg/m vibrates at a (fundamental) frequency of 460.0 Hz.

(a) What is the speed of the transverse string waves?
m/s

(b) What is the tension?
N

(c) What are the wavelength and frequency of the sound wave in air produced by vibration of the string? The speed of sound in air at room temperature is 340 m/s.
wavelength m
frequency Hz



Please help; I have no idea on how to do this one.
