Which one of the following statements about standing waves on a string is FALSE?
a. All other frequencies are integer multiples of the first harmonic
b. The first harmonic is the lowest frequency standing wave that can be formed.
c. The first harmonic has the shortest wavelength of the harmonic series
d. A set of standing waves with fixed frequencies are possible
Jake, what do you think the answer is?
Look at pictures of waves on a string.
which is the longest wave? Do waves get longer or shorter as the frequency and number of the harmonic go up?
