A steel piano string for the note middle C is about 0.68 m long and is under a tension of 400 N. If the fundamental frequency is 226 Hz, what is the string’s diameter? I have tried it several times and continue to get an incorrect answer.

A uniform string fixed at one end passes over a pulley and then is attached to a hanging object. The string is horizontal between the fixed end and the pulley. When you let the hanging object oscillate in the vertical plane, the fundamental frequency of the horizontal part of ...

he largest tension that can be sustained by a stretched string of linear mass density μ, even in principle, is given by τ = μc2, where c is the speed of light in vacuum. (This is an enormous value. The breaking tensions of all ordinary materials are about 12 ...

Try this one, which you should memorize: (frequency)*(wavelength) = wave speed The trick is to know that, for the fundamental frequency, the wavelength is twice the length of the string, because only a half-wave is vibrating.

"You will measure the tension T, the mass m, and the length L of your spring. In terms of these variables, what is the expected frequency of the fundamental standing wave?" I found the fundamental frequency to be: f = 1/2L * sqrt(T/m/L)?
