A string with linear mass density μ = 0.0279 kg/m under a tension of T = 183 N is oriented in the x-direction. Two transverse waves of equal amplitude and with a phase angle of zero (at t = 0) but with different frequencies (ω = 3420 rad/s and ω/3 = 1140 rad/s) are created in the string by an oscillator located at x = 0. The resulting waves, which travel in the positive x-direction, are reflected at a distant point, so there is a similar pair of waves traveling in the negative x-direction. Find the values of x at which the first two nodes in the standing wave are produced by these four waves.
